As always it takes me a while to get my act together after a trip in respect of posting and visiting. I am working towards it I promise....I'll get there.
Being back at work has been kind of odd and at the same time enjoyable. Odd how you miss people even though in an ideal world you would prefer not to have to go through the dirty work thing! So the last few days have been fun with weather to match. It would seem that will change tonight though with heavy rain forecast. Thank the gods that I cut the grass yesterday....I can sit back and enjoy the downpour!

Today's image is another from the Minoan Prince Hotel and the first interior from the place. I have been trying to gain access for the last few trips but without forcing my way in...well this time I found an open door! It was very dark and I really held out no hope for the three shots I took and yet they all seem kinda good. 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!

Time is never time at all
You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth
And our lives are forever changed
We will never be the same
The more you change the less you feel

Believe, believe in me, believe
Believe that life can change
That you're not stuck in vain
Were not the same, were different tonight
Tonight, so bright
Tonight

And you know youre never sure
But youre sure you could be right
If you held yourself up to the light
And the embers never fade in your city by the lake
The place where you were born

Believe, believe in me, believe
Believe in the resolute urgency of now
And if you believe theres not a chance tonight
Tonight, so bright
Tonight

Well crucify the insincere tonight
Well make things right, well feel it all tonight
Well find a way to offer up the night tonight
The indescribable moments of your life tonight
The impossible is possible tonight
Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight

Listening to: "Tonight, Tonight" (Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness: Dawn To Dusk) - Smashing Pumpkins
