Categories: Astia 100  Crete  Holga  

What can I tell you? The sun shone so beautifully this weekend. World Toy Camera Day was a hoot....loaded up the Holga and the Diana and had a wander into town. Even managed to take a few shots of my very obliging artist friend Jasper Rose who paints on the canal bank on an almost daily basis. Very kind of him to assist with my people taking skills. As I said the weather was quite stunning, cold starts....fog and mist, you get the picture. Slowly burning off to reveal the most beautiful day. The same today as well. Cold start and cold finish but I am still in shorts and only have to last to next Sunday then can escape to Crete again.
The computer seems to be 100% OK thank god, it is such a joy to be able to use a large screen. It was wonderful to have the laptop but that screen....shit, I almost lost the will to live. One of my prints has now appeared in a book, I mentioned it a while back but now have the book in my sticky mits and am very pleased with how it looks. As soon as my motivation goes up I will post some detail and stuff....sorry seem to be constantly posting late these days and am always too tired to do the research. Perhaps tomorrow OK?

Today's image is one from the local high school in the town of Neapoli (Νεάπολη). My distaste for the over all ambiance of the place is well documented here so I won't go on about it! The sports facilities leave a lot to be desired as well. The football pitch being so badly overgrown that I find it difficult to imagien a football match being played here. All it would need is a wander with a weed spray and it would be sorted...I guess that's just a little to straight forward! The slide film seems to give if a good feel, verging on the positive...it really wasn't like that. Yes there is a map for you to gaze over! So for all you map fetishists out there here is an aerial shot of the school, the building can be seen in the centre of the photo. Neapoli is off to the right if you want to take a look.
