Tampering With The Water Table! - Limnes (Λίμνες, Κρήτη) Crete

Why do people tell you they will call you the next day and then not do it? Two days now and no call re the job so I am assuming the worst or is that the best! I have to say I don't give a shit if I have the job or not but not doing what you say you will really annoys me...ah well. I have another interview tomorrow....perhaps these people will be a little more considerate and call when they say. I have to say it is a slightly better job and on the out of 10 scale is almost a 3 or 4 so you can probably tell I have high hopes.
The first of my little purchases came today, the Polaroid back for the Hasselblad so I have been playing all day which then prompted me to get the SX-70 out and take shots with that...I have quite a little collection amassing considering I have nothing decent to scan them with. I did manage one cool shot...which I may post soon of the cat mid yawn on the sx-70. I was really chuffed how it came out. I also like the stashing of Polaroids in a drawer it appeals to my hoarding instinct.

I really need to knuckle down to some image processing. I have stuff sat on disc from the Crete trip in March, of course I have cherry picked the best ones but I need to go through the films properly and get all the decent images off. So sorry for the lack of variation it will be done. It's only 10 days until we are off to Crete so I need a little reserve of images for the advance posting.

Today's image is another from the Crete trip in March. Taken close to the village of Limnes(Λίμνες) which actually means lakes. The village is very low in altitude terms and used to be surrounded by lakes most of which have been drained for agricultural purposes and latterly for new building. We all know the possible consequences of ignoring the water table! There always seem to be someone who pays the price. Here is an aerial shot of the village. The dark patch is one of the lakes but it has now been drained, filled and built on. The photo was taken in the small plots of agricultural land that surround the village, they used to extract water from wells with windmills as shown in the photo but these now largely stand rusting and the water extraction is effortless and automated. They used to rely on no-one now they need power as much as the next guy...shame!

BBC correspondent Alan Johnston was abducted in Gaza on 12th March 2007. Video was released in the past few days of him by his captors but still more pressure is needed on the various governments to act. Why not sign the Petition in the hope that it will assist with his early release.

Now everybody's scared
Scared of being lonely and abandoned
If you find someone who cares
Find someone to love and understand you
