Some background on the picture. I was on Santorini Greece one day during my honeymoon. You anchor off the coast and take a tender to the harbor. To get from the harbor to Fira you need to take a gondola up the 800' cliff that the town is built upon. Your only other option is to walk up a winding road that clings to the cliff side. For those who are lazy, you can hire a donkey to carry you up the road as well.
It was late in the day and the gondola had a huge line for it, so we decided to walk down the narrow road to the harbor. It was amazingly hot outside with no breeze what-so-ever. As we were going down the road, we passed by hundreds of donkeys taking people up and down the tight, slippery, and sometimes steep road. Did I mention it was hot? When we go to the bottom I saw this one donkey, resting in the shade with his head against a door. He looked so sad and worn out, just trying to get some reprieve from the heat and the toil of his dreary life. I took only one picture, but I think that I captured his emotions well. The donkeys face is quite expressive.
The more I look at this picture, the more my heart goes out to this poor little guy.
