OK, I'm back. It was too short...I'm tired and have nothing to say until I have had time to gather my thoughts. One week just isn't enough, I do kind of burn slow so I need to almost have 3 days taking no photos before I get my ass in gear! In a six day holiday one starts to panic, so the end of the holiday was a little frantic, I guess I'll just have to go for longer and more often. I seem top operate on a better level there.
Tonight's post was sorted but I can't leave the text when I am here....and hell you must be bored stiff with it all.

You are ready for windmill shots right? I did shoot a stack of the things, in between the drinking and eating

Today's photo is another from the Katharo Plateau (Οροπέδιο Καθαρού, Λασίθι Κρήτης). I love the mystical quality that the Holga gives it.
It is said of Katharo, (and I always quote this) that it is a place to where half of the soul of Kritsans belongs. On the well-worn red and yellow "square" of Katharo, the footsteps of hundreds of humans intermingle with the tracks of flocks of animals in summertime, whilst during the inhospitable winters on the lower slopes, the struggle for water has been won.

Competition

OK, this will be the last full week of the competition. I suggest if you haven't had a guess yet you get over there and have a go. I will announce the last day later this week. The prizes are fab. Get yourself back there and enter. Top prize is a print and life long friendship from me. I'm even contemplating offering a 2nd and 3rd prize. Sounds to good to be true right? So have a go.

Horses in my dreams
Like waves, like the sea
They pull out of here
They pull, they are free

Rode a horse around the world
Along the tracks of a train
Broke the record, found the gold
Set myself free again

I have pulled myself clear

Horses in my dreams
Like waves, like the sea
On the tracks of a train
Set myself free again

I have pulled myself clear
