Not really that much to tell you about the shot really. A sign I must have passed hundreds of times over the past 10 years. I did even try and take a photo of it a few visits ago but wasn't really that happy with the results. So I thought I would give it the benefit of some black and white film and see what happened - I'm kind of happy with the results. Situated just outside of the coastal village of Amoudara (Αμουδάρα) and looking out over the bay of Mirabello towards Kavousi and the Thripti range of mountains beyond. Here is also an aerial shot of the area.

His father was a drinker
And his mother cried in bed
Folding John Wayne's T-shirts
When the swingset hit his head
The neighbors they adored him
For his humor and his conversation
Look underneath the house there
Find the few living things
Rotting fast in their sleep of the dead
Twenty-seven people, even more
They were boys with their cars, summer jobs
Oh my God

Are you one of them?

He dressed up like a clown for them
With his face paint white and red
And on his best behavior
In a dark room on the bed he kissed them all
He'd kill ten thousand people
With a sleight of his hand
Running far, running fast to the dead
He took of all their clothes for them
He put a cloth on their lips
Quiet hands, quiet kiss
On the mouth

And in my best behavior
I am really just like him
Look beneath the floorboards
For the secrets I have hid
