Well, as I'm away in Crete I thought I ought to at least post a few photos from the island.
One from a previous trip and in particular the village village of Kendri (Κεντρί). A village I haven't visited in many a year and I certainly haven't been here since I started using medium format. I do find that if I visit a village at the wrong time of day it can hamper what I do - certain times of day seem to have lots of people sat outside their houses and as a result very interested in what I am up to and where I am going. This was one of those visits. I did however find one charming house that yielded a number of shots that I am very happy with. This trip was also the first time that I had used Kodak Ektar film and I must say I am very impressed with it. It seems to respond very well to long exposures, so I think I shall use again.

Kendri (Κεντρί) is very close to the south coast of Crete and to the large town or Ierapetra (Ιεράπετρα), so here is a map of Kendri (Κεντρί) and the surrounding area.

It's written in big letters
Graffiti all over town
It says TROUBLEMAKERS ON THE RUN
And both our names are written down
Oh but infamy or fame
Each came in a small dose
I just wish the day would come
When the last one would be so close
