I have no weekend exploits to share. It was glorious weather and I stayed in so there I seem to be contradicting myself with what I said earlier in the week! Damn, there I was thinking I was consistent? Perhaps I am consistent in my inconsistency eh? Sounds good to me. Well more planning of the Crete trip has been in hand, managed to get the dates cleared at work which is great just need to book the damn flights now before they decide to put them up or decree cameras to be offensive weapons. I'm sure it's only a matter of time.
Was going to apologise for my inconsistent posting over the weekend but what would be the point of that. I need to clear some time to get things done and the post every night takes an age and always has me to bed late...even though I love it. OK, OK, I know I could post earlier perhaps even get organised. Not sure if and when that will happen. Having said that there may be some blog downtime tomorrow as I think my Pixelpost is being upgraded, so please keep trying. That was silly to type that because if you have read it then you have got on...perhaps I should have warned you yesterday? Ah, it's late.
Don't forget to pop over to the annual Photomedia Center Holga show. I have two images up for grabs which are The Bride Of Christ and The Shape Of Things To Come. Be sure to also check out all the other great photos that are on offer there.

Today's image is another from the Minoan Prince Hotel and my first posted with the Hasselblad SWC/M - my baby! Obviously not long out of business but already fading fast. I was surprised to find that there is still a website in existence for it! Take a look here at the home page and see the hotel in it's former glory! Call me weird but I kind of preferred how I found it...gracefully decaying. It looked as if it had been closed for ages but the web page suggests otherwise. For those of you with an interest here is an aerial view as well. A return visit at some stage I would think!

With a grey existence
It doesn't feel like Saturday
Unfinished business
We used to talk
Lately it's been
Reminiscent of me
Reminiscent of me

Even open hands
My questions dear
Touch my hand
It's ok
Cause it's all I have
This persistence
And it keeps the sad
Days away
Reminiscent of me
Reminiscent of me

You make it easy
To stay at home
Don't you know
It's so easy
To stay at home
Don't you know
