The odd weather continues today with warm sunny spells and blustery showers and wind. Very autumnal, a bit of a chill in the air this morning but very nice. I am hanging on to the shorts at the moment as it's only 4 weeks until I flee these shores once more...oh sweet joy! If I can last out until then it will mean I can remain in shorts until the middle of November. Result.
Picked up all the C41 Colour stuff today from the processors which was great, shit I didn't realise I had shot quite so many windmills, I seem to have been on a mission of some sort. I promise not to post them all at once but you will be seeing a few through the winter. Not tonight though.

I guess we ought to give the competition result just one last mention, you know in case you missed it. If you know the result or don't care look away now! At the time of the competition the number of tunes on my ipod was, 13,729 which means that Kelly was closest by 663 songs! The other two were close but not close enough. Prizes love and all sorts will shortly be on the way to her.....I just know that she will make a great best friend. I am giving some thought to a Christmas competition...we shall see. Of course if there is a festive version then it will be better than any competition you have ever experienced

Today's photo is the first form the most recent trip...nothing much to say really other than it was this abandoned car in the most idyllic location. Very close to the small village of Lapithos (Λαπίθος). I hate to think of the landscape being littered with decaying hunks of metal so I try and tell myself that someone parked up one day and the view was that good that they couldn't bring themselves to leave. I have tried to locate this place on google maps but it's making my head hurt so you will have to do without a map ok?

well you can hang me in a bottle like a cat
let the crows pick me clean but for my hat
where the wailing of a baby
meets the footsteps of the dead
we're all mad here
and the devil sticks his flag into the mud
Mrs Carol has run off with Reverend Judd
hell is such a lonely place
and your big expensive face will never last
have I told you all about the eyeball kid?
he was born alone inside a petri dish
he was born without a body or a brow
and you'll die with the rose still on your lips
and in time the heart-shaped bone that was your hips
and all the worms
they will climb the rugged ladder of your spine
we're all mad here
and my eyeballs roll this terrible terrain
and we're all inside a decomposing train
and your eyes will die like fish
and the shore of your face will turn to bone
hang me in a bottle like a cat
let the crows pick me clean but for my hat
where the wailing of a baby
meets the footsteps of the dead
we're all mad here
