Well, I'm gradually working my way through the scans and am becoming happier with the shots as I progress, which I guess is good!I really need to get motivated to do some shooting here in the UK but I have to say the colder weather coupled with shorter days and even less sunshine than the winter don't really inspire. Still, I have a few things in mind and will be trying to get my act together soon. I guess at least having been away for a few weeks I have a little stock of shots to get me through any unproductive times.

OK, yet another from the extremely secret old American base in Gournes (Γούρνες, Κρήτη) Crete. I think that this is the first interior from the base that I have posted, mainly because it has been stripped over the years and although most of the buildings remain and are in tact they are empty. This is the old cinema/theatre - as you can see, much remains although in a very poor state. The light was hard to manage as there was natural light coming in at the end of the building yet the foreground needed about 30 seconds, hence the odd colour shift. For those who haven't have a wander before here is an aerial view.

Sat 'neath the eyes of the lofty skies
We were chained by the rain to the pain of our love
We kissed and cried
Held 'neath the bars of the tangling stars
We were pinned by the might of the warrior night
We kissed and cried

O this time of love moves me.
