OK I'm back! OK a few of you may have already gathered that....in fact I returned on Friday but have really needed a few days to get my shit together. So it's all in one place.....films went in on Friday and I had them back on Saturday. I have been scanning like a whirling dervish and I have to say am somewhat pleased with the results so far! It was something of a departure this trip in that I shot almost exclusively colour and mostly indoors, which was silly really as we had 14 days of temperatures in excess of 35 degrees. Interior shots were not the thing to be doing, still I sought refuge in the sea each day and made myself drink copious amounts of liquids...Gin is OK for rehydration right?

So this is the first photo from the trip and funnily the last photo from the trip. Shot in Kritsa (Κριτσά) about 1 hour before we left, a place where I feel most at home....I never want to be there for ever..god that may kill the magic but I do feel that it is where my heart is. I had been using this cafe for internet access and refreshment most mornings so it kind of holds a nice place in the holiday. Since at least pre-Minoan times, the village of Kritsa (Κριτσά) has been continuously inhabited. It was reckoned to be in its prime during the Byzantine years. The Arabs devastated it in 823 A.D. and it was rebuilt in 961A.D. Its peak growth was reached during the Frankish period in the 13th and 14th century. It used to be the largest village in Crete during the middle ages. In 1867, it became the headquarters of the municipality which included Krousta, Prina, Kalo Horio, Mardati, Aghios Nikolaos, Mesa Lakonia and Tapes. In 1925 it had its own community, but since 1998 it has comprised one of the 14 precincts of the Municipality of Aghios Nikolaos. You want to visit the cafe and drink Greek Coffee? OK well here is a map of Kritsa (Κριτσά). for guidance!

his wicked
sense of humour

they focus on her

he's venus as a boy

he's exploring
the taste of her
so accurate

he sets off
the beauty in her
he's venus
venus as a boy

he believes in a beauty
