I knew the not posting at night would cause me problems. Lovely as it is not having to deal with that at night I am having trouble getting a routine started! Full of good intentions to do it when I get home from work but then I get distracted...before I know it I'm almost anouther day further down the line. I know it doesn't really matter in the scheme of things but I'm working on it. Having said that it will soon be disrupted once more as I'm off back to Crete for Orthodox Easter.....I know it only seems like a few weeks ago I was there. Well you're right it was only a few weeks ago! Need to get my photo stocks up.
Spring has sort of arrived here...slightly on the cool side but the weather has been beautifully sunny and full of promise. I ought to be in shorts by now, perhaps before the end of the week. The Blackbird has hatched her first clutch of eggs and has three naked little chicks. So close to the front door as well, you can stare right into the nest. She had three clutches of eggs last year and is quite early with this one so perhaps another bumper year of Blackbirds!

Taken last visit in the mountain village of Skinias (Σκυνιάς). It's been a few years since I dropped by the village. The last time there we were invited into a blacksmiths workshop and treated to a great time. Not so this time but it was great wandering the back streets. I found this derelict factory or workshop. There was a stack of machinery outside that tends to indicate it was an olive oil factory, I may post some of those at a later date. The workshop was gloomy but not to bad exposure wise. It needed a tripod with exposures of about a second at F16. I took a few colour as well which were kinda nice. Anyway here's an aerial view of the village and the surroundings.

Don't get down
Don't waste time on things that you can't ever change
I know we all do
Write a song
All your new ones are the best you've ever sung
Write another one
And all you need to do
Is get away from everything
Quit this sad old scene
Come back when you feel the need
We'll all be here for you

Don't get let down
Don't spend time with people you don't even like
I know we all do
Write a song
All your old ones don't mean a thing if you don't sing
Any new ones
And all you need to do
Is get away from everything
Quit this sad old scene
Come back when you feel the need
We'll all be here for you
And find something that will make you feel
Like everyday's too short
we're only here for a little while
You'd better make your mark
