Boats docked along a small car free Greek Island (Hydra).
The image depicts a line of small boats docked along the edge of Hydra, Greece. The locals use these boats to commute to Athens as needed. The boats tell a story of the unique lives of the small population of this island. The row of buildings visible in the background is the majority of the town center; the rest of the island is an agricultural residential area. The locals live and work here, leading uniquely peaceful lives so close to the bustling city of Athens.
