I'm a little confused just exactly what happened yesterday and quite why I didn't post. Time just seemed to get away from me. I guess the full day due to a staff meeting and then the swilling of beer afterwards may have been contributory factors. I think it was also something to do with having a folder full of work ready to post but the looking at it day after day makes me less inclined to use it!
Well tomorrow (Friday) I have my first paid photographic work. I must say I am a little apprehensive as I'm not exactly sure what will be required of me. I'll tell you more if it goes ok and if it doesn't...well I shall probably never speak of it again. It would be nice to put some money back into this, perhaps offset a few of the expenses or perhaps even put it towards some extravagant road trip, there are things I must do and places I must go. I guess mainly I want to do a good job for my friend Dan who has put his faith in me, who knows it might bring more work. So watch this space.

A shot from the last trip to Crete and a village we visit a lot as friends live there. I have wandered endlessly but don't seem to have taken a lot of shots, odd as it is a beautiful place. Perhaps it's because the obviously beautiful isn't what I'm looking for for the large part. Anyway, this is the village of Fourni (Φουρνή). This old house was rather charming and on first appearances I thought I was going to have a field day in there. Alas not, just the one shot, which is cool. Here is an aerial view.

Don't doubt yourself, babe
Let your feet stand up
For your beliefs babe

I know what's running through your mind
You think you ought to capture time
Make love walk the straight and narrow
Oh,oh,oh...

Don't doubt yourself, gal
Let what's inside be your guide
You know darn well

For all the wrongs been done to you
Is makin' you prettier so don't be blue
The life you've lived
And what you've been through you're lucky
Oh,oh,oh...

Don't doubt yourself when
Daylight fades and darkness begins

It's only come to show you that
You're the one who knows where it's at
The rest who think they've
Got it pat know nothing
Oh,oh,oh...

Don't doubt yourself 'cause
At the end of your words
No one applauds

The truth is proven to be found
Harder to take the first time around
So don't you worry it's gonna be all right
Oh,oh,oh...
