A little bit of flitting backwards and forwards between Crete and the states. No real reason other than, as I process I get excited to show and as I am working between both - well, you get the picture! Back to my most recent trip to Crete and back to the burnt out hotel. I was driving through the town of Hersonissos (Χερσόνησος) when I spotted this burnt out hotel from the roadside, right in the centre of town. I'm guessing it must have happened last year. I'm not sure if I have ever shot in a place quite so damn dark - I guess the fact that everything was burnt to a crisp and so black didn't help. There didn't seem to be any reflected light, so even though it was the middle of the day the exposures were very long. For the record here is an aerial view of Hersonissos (Χερσόνησος) and the hotel's location.

This is the day that love chose to play,
The day love came to stay,
This kiss is for the first time,
And this kiss is for that time
Love to ride

This is the day that love chose to play
One minute here, one minute there
Love spent time everywhere,
This day that love chose to stay

This is the day that love chose to play,
The day love came to stay,
This kiss is for the first time,
And this kiss is for that time
Love to ride

This is the day that love chose to play
One minute here, one minute there
Love spent time everywhere,
This day that love chose to stay
