OK have all my films back and am slightly disappointed with the results, or at least the percentage of shots that I am happy with. It's odd, I kind of felt it whilst I was taking them and it seems to have come across in the results. Perhaps my negative thoughts there contributed to the end result, dunno. There are quite a few I am happy with though. So I have done the scanning which is both tedious and rewarding. I love to see those images large for the first time. Time to start planning to get away again I guess.
I am though, having a lot of trouble getting back into the routine of posting. Not sure why I'm surprised, it seems to happen after every trip. Trying to knuckle down as best I can.

OK, the first image from the trip and one from the town of Neapoli (Νεάπολη). Once the regional capital it has now been relegated to second place by the coastal town of Aghios Nikolaos (Άγιος Νικόλαος) which is a few miles down the road. The locals may not feel it but I think that they did Neapoli a favour in doing it as it remains a lovely quiet town with none of the tourist tat of the coast....perfect for wanders with a camera. Here is an aerial view of Neapoli (Νεάπολη).

Home is where I want to be
Pick me up and turn me round
I feel numb - burn with a weak heart
(So I) guess I must be having fun
The less we say about it the better
Make it up as we go along
Feet on the ground
Head in the sky
It's ok I know nothing's wrong . . nothing

Hi yo I got plenty of time
Hi yo you got light in your eyes
And you're standing here beside me
I love the passing of time
Never for money
Always for love
Cover up + say goodnight . . . say goodnight

Home - is where I want to be
But I guess I'm already there
I come home - -she lifted up her wings
Guess that this must be the place
I can't tell one from another
Did I find you, or you find me?
There was a time Before we were born
If someone asks, this where I'll be . . . where I'll be

Hi yo We drift in and out
Hi yo sing into my mouth
Out of all tose kinds of people
You got a face with a view
I'm just an animal looking for a home
Share the same space for a minute or two
And you love me till my heart stops
Love me till I'm dead
Eyes that light up, eyes look through you
Cover up the blank spots
Hit me on the head Ah ooh
