We took several Digital Imaging and Photography students on a trip to Greece for Spring break. We had a wonderful time and got to Photograph so many amazing sights.

Hydra was my favorite island that we visited. Most of the houses were white with beautiful blue accents.

The second island we visited was Poros.

The third island we visited was Aegina

We took the bus into the countryside, which is very mountainous. This is the famous village of Arachova.

Delphi is the most important archeological site in Greece. It was considered to be the center of the world. This is where people from all over the world came to see the oracle.

These are the musical inscriptions, hymns to Apollo. These inscriptions are the oldest written notations of a melody.

This is what marked the center of the world.

The first S-curve in the artistic world.

The beach at our hotel in Patras. This is the Ionian Sea.

Olympia is where the first Olympic games took place.
