Yet Another Failed Business Venture In Kavousi (Καβούσι, Κρήτη) Crete.

What can I say...It's Friday so I am as happy as a pig in shit. I think that the late nights have caught up with me this week so the thought of not being roused by the sound of the alarm is almost to sweet to bear. As it stands at the moment I am three parts pissed on wine without much to say so I guess the best I can do is tell you about the photo. I have been looking at these derelict greenhouses in Crete now for what seems like years, always meaning to photograph them but for some reason always walking away. On this last visit I took the Holga for the first time and suddenly it all seemed to fall into place. Bless her heart she seems to have opened my eyes in so many different ways. It seems as if someone had a grand business venture here...great plans to grow produce on a grand scale and make a few quid into the bargain. As you can see, they seem to have got it wrong somewhere down the line! Goodness knows what the problem was but the whole set up seems to be slowly being devoured by the harsh Cretan climate. I must say they're not ones for clearing up after themselves....these greenhouses will only disappear if the climate takes them back.

God I hate to fall asleep in front of the TV and it happened tonight. I'm sure that you've all done it, you doze off for what seems like 2 minutes....probably more like an hour but when you wake up you have no idea where you are, half of your body seems to have gone numb but the worst thing is that you feel as if some animal has climbed into your mouth and died. I have just spent the last 10 minutes wandering around the house moaning and wishing myself dead. The odd thing is I knew that within 30 minutes I would be wide awake and not able to sleep for hours! So here I am, destined to be awake for at least the next 3 hours, by my calculation that makes bedtime about 2am!

I hold out little hope for photographs over the weekend as the forecast is grim to say the least. So I guess the best I can do is wish you all a happy and sunny weekend, and if you are thinking of doing it at all then do it with someone you love....how cool would that be!
