Pyrgi, on the Greek island of Chios, is famous for its houses decorated with geometric designs. This shot was taken at the end of summer when the village was practically deserted and only a few die-hard locals remained. It was nice to catch the place in a quieter mode, and get a sense of its character with almost no one around.
