Shades To Seduce. Minoan Prince Hotel, Ierapetra (Ιεράπετρα, Κρήτη) Crete.

There is always a slight pain and joy when I utter those words 'I'm out of here' which indeed I am for a few weeks. Well I am in a few hours time. The need for warmth and to replenish my photo stocks of Crete has become to great and so I'm off back to the beautiful Island of Crete! One of these days I'll manage to go somewhere else but for now I don't think this will do me any harm. I have to say my hayfever is not a problem there so I look forward to a slightly easier time with regard to that and as the English summer seems to have dissolved these last 2 years, (if in fact we ever had one) this seems to be the only way to guarantee some sun. I think if my memory serves me right we had a nice summer in 1976. We must be due another soon!

As always my base will be the beautiful mountain village of Kritsa (Κριτσά). Here is a map of where I am located, the little marker is just about where the house is. That's you looking at me and here is what I see looking towards the sea.

If you fancy some film goodness whilst I am away then you can do no better than popping over in the direction of the Filmwasters Blog. The images change there every day and you can access all of the blogs and sites via the images. Hell, if it's a little community that you are after then why not joint the Filmwasters Forum. A more positive thing you'd be hard pressed to do if film is your bag. Not into film?....well they may tempt you back from the dark side.

Today's image is another from the Minoan Prince Hotel. 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.

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
