The last of the extremely charred remains of this hotel. I do have a few more but not showing the damage in such an extreme way. I am hoping to return to Crete in the next few weeks, so if I'm lucky this will still be as is - I have plans for a few more shots. Knowing my luck the place with me pulled down or knowing the Greeks, repaired and open for business. As I have explained before, the hotel is situated in Hersonissos (Χερσόνησος). It was the first time that I had photographed a burnt out building. The light was odd, outside it was very bright and a lot of that light was coming into the building and yet due to the heavy burning there was almost zero reflected light making it very difficult to operate. Still, I managed to take a few and most were a success. For those with an interest here is an aerial view of Hersonissos (Χερσόνησος) and the hotel's location.

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
