Just Who's Listening To Whom #2. Gournes (Γούρνες, Κρήτη) Crete?

Best part of another full days work today! Yeah I know...it's a little unsettling I have to say. I mean I enjoy finishing at 1 coming home...having a middle aged guy sleep, perhaps with a cup of tea being brought to me...gently waking. But today alas not...a full 9 hour day! I'll pay as I'm not sure my body can take it...if I fade half way through this post then then you will know what is to blame! In an odd way I miss the full day. Obviously I would rather not work at all but working part time whilst all those around you are working full time...well, you kinda feel that you are slightly out of the loop. I guess I'll get over it. :)
So I had some web page editing training today which I was pleased about...would be good to be more involved at work but hell this sort of stuff is always useful. It was using Adobe Contribute, really simple web page updating. Removed the need to know anything really...will be great for updating the company website....need to get a copy for myself may make stuff I do a tad easier as my knowledge is dodgy to say the least.

OK, another from the extremely 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. The fact I have posted a couple probably has me above Osama on the most wanted list but marginally behind George W. 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.

Freezing Monday morning
She is waiting for her train to come
I brush past her, smell her perfume
Watch her hair move as she turns to go
She doesn't know I exist
I'm gonna keep it like this
I'm not gonna take any risks this time

She's not like the others
With their papers and their headphones on
She reads novels by French authors with loose morals
She can do no wrong
I wouldn't say I'm obsessed
I don't wanna see her undressed
We can be prince and princess in my dream
And we're dancing
Through the evening
'Til the morning
