Just Who's Listening To Whom In Gournes (Γούρνες, Κρήτη) Crete?

Have had a bad left knee for some time now...hurts a lot makes me limp like an idiot. But it disappeared as suddenly as it appeared. Now it seems to be back with a vengeance.....now causing muscle problems elsewhere. Back to doctor today....and well it would appear that kneecaps are supposed to move up and down but not side to side! Apparently all the walking I do has caused the muscle on the outside of my thigh to pull the kneecap to one side! Whereas the muscle on the inside of the thigh is lagging behind. So need to exercise those muscles to get knee back on track...I'm exhausted just thinking about it...I have to do twisty things to the leg...all sat on my ass which I guess is a good thing. So if you see someone limping with a camera it might just be me! Not sure that it is serious enough to get me any serious sympathy but I might see what I can do tomorrow.
I still walked home from work martyr that I am...I guess I could try and walk doing the leg exercise at the same time..you know some kind of leg flicking action that might get me a lot of attention! Perhaps the wrong sort.
I was going to talk about the state of English football but then remembered that it was thanksgiving in the states and so you are all sat down full of food watching a different kind of football...not real you understand! So how did Greenbay do? I know they were 10 and 1, what does that mean? I think it might be good.

OK, enough chit chat. On today's photo which is something of a departure for me. Taken on the last trip to Crete at the almost secret old American base in Gournes (Γούρνες, Κρήτη) Crete. These seem to be the remainder of a transmitting or listening station, possibly both. I am loathed to ask too much or I will have to be shot at dawn. Anyway, I had an idea of using these masts with the Holga and it seems to have come out almost how I visualised it. I took about 8 shots and all seem kinda usable so I will drip feed them to you gradually. Anyway here is an aerial view. You can clearly see the masts in the centre of the photo and the remainder of the base surrounding it.

No shadow
No stars
No moon
No care
It only believes
In a pile of dead leaves
And a moon
That's the color of bone

No prayers for November
To linger longer
Stick your spoon in the wall
We'll slaughter them all

November has tied me
To an old dead tree
Get word to April
To rescue me
November's cold chain

Made of wet boots and rain
And shiny black ravens
On chimney smoke lanes
November seems odd
You're my firing squad

With my hair slicked back
With carrion shellac
With the blood from a pheasant
And the bone from a hare

Tied to the branches
Of a roebuck stag
Left to wave in the timber
Like a buck shot flag

Go away you rainsnout
Go away, blow your brains out
