Long Forgotten - Kato Horio (Κάτω Χωριό) Crete

I do love street signs and the rustier the better, the trouble is that they are usually a little bit high for photographing comfortably...well they always seem to be in Crete in my experience, usually about 10 feet off of the floor. I was really taken with this one the whole thing, the rust, the colour of the wall, the door. All I could do to get on a level with it was climb on the roof of the hire car and use a 300 zoom not my prefered lens with 100 asa film and no tripod......I like it and well worth the effort I think. Unfortunately I won't be able to return to the village for a few years as most of the locals now think I am some nutter who takes pictures of walls.
