They Said I'd Find Shelter From The Sun In Ierapetra (Ιεράπετρα, Κρήτη) Crete.

The weekend is over and very nice it was. Saturday I had a 60th birthday party to attend which was very nice especially when you are the youngest...the taste of things to come I guess. I considered mentioning my bad knee to the people there but then thought as most of them were over 65 it would fall on deaf ears...hell no even worst I would then get to hear about all their ailments! The last thing I need is a long story about how many times someone has to get up in the night or how Viagra has turned their life around...hell I get enough email promising that!
Sunday was just as nice...a lovely evening out at friends who have two delightful daughters who tolerated me taking Polaroid's of them...they are so sweet, I will enjoy emailing them back to them tomorrow...always good to have willing models. I really need to take more people shots.....perhaps Ella and Tara can be my guinea pigs.....I guess I ought to clear it with their parents really! Nothing better then a wonderful evening out and photographic memories that will always be there.

OK, tonight photo is another from the most recent trip to Crete. The south of the island is covered with what appears to be miles and miles of green houses. Precious few are glass covered, the majority are covered in plastic....when you look down on the area from the mountains it is amazing...it's as if a giant mirror has been installed to reflect the sun. Many of them are in a poor state of repair as this photo is witness too. I have included an aerial shot of the area to show you the extent of plastic coverage! The grey oblong areas are all greenhouses.

OK guys some of you have been wonderful enough to nominate me over at the Photoblogawards. I would like to thank all of you that have...but if you haven't then the link will provide you with a slightly easier way of doing so. I thank you in advance.

What am I supposed to do?
When everything that I've done
Is leading me to conclude
I'm not the one.
Whatever I've done
I've been staring down the Barrel of a Gun.
