Well, by the time you see this image I will have been gone a few days! Back to Crete for a while I'm afraid. A good time to go with the tourist season being over and a calmness about the place. I have a few photographic things I need to continue with so hopefully the weather will be kind to me and enable me to come back with a sack load of new stuff! Of course in between the shooting I'll try and find time for a good time....lots to eat and drink and hopefully catch up on a little sleep!

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.

Long about an hour before sunrise
she drags his body down to the edge of the swollen river
wrapped in a red velvet curtain stolen from the movie theatre where she works.
Quiet as a whisper, under the stanchions of a washed-out bridge she cuts him loose
and watches as the flood waters spin him around once, then carry him away.
Then she removes the golden ring upon her finger...and she throws it in.
And I wonder; Baby why don't you cry? Baby why don't you... Baby why don't you cry?
Three days later in a bar in southern Mississippi she meets a man by the name of Charles Lee.
She introduces herself to him as "Lee Charles" "What a coincidence." he says...
and one week later they are married. He wakes up one night six months down the line to find her...
staring at him in the oddest way. When he says, "Honey, what's wrong?" she says,
"Oh nothing dear...except that tears are a stupid trick of God."
And by the time they find his body six weeks later... Well hell, she's a thousand miles away.
And I wonder; Baby why don't you cry? Baby why don't you... Baby why don't you cry?
She runs from devils. She runs from angels. She runs from the ghost of her father and five different uncles.
Blinded by their memory, seared by their pain, she'd like to kill 'em all...then kill 'em all again.
She don't think much about what she's done or the funny feelings that she feels. No, she don't.
To her it's just a condition she picked up as a child... a little thing she calls,
"the wound that never heals", she calls it, "the wound that never heals"
And I wonder; Baby why don't you cry? Baby why don't you...Baby why don't you cry?
