From the archive: Fira Santorini 1979

Greece, Fira Santorini – July 1979

This week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge (#164) is ‘Looking Up/Looking Down’.

Again one from the archives. The then small town of Fira, on the island Thira aka Santorini, built on the edge of a former caldera. Since 1979 tourism boomed extremely on this beautiful island. I feel fortunate to have visited it before that tourist flood. But each time I see photos of this place I long to go back. The beaches are perfect: volcanic ashes that does not stick like sand.

About the B4 retouch series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish. Some of them are partly retouched but most do have scratches, dust and stains.

The  picture was originally shot with Pentax K1000 on Kodak Plusx, scanned from negative and tweaked using Snapseed and Marksta. Click the picture for a larger version.

From the archives: Chania Crete 1992

Greece, Chania Crete, August 1992

This week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge (#164) is ‘Looking Up/Looking Down’.

Again one from the archives and hence monochrome. In August 1992 I visited Crete and old town of Chania. The old lighthouse in the old harbour.

From the archive: Roof Terrace 1992

Greece, Chania Crete – August 1992

This week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge (#164) is ‘Looking Up/Looking Down’.

Again one from the archives and hence monochrome. In August 1992 I visited Crete and old town of Chania. This was the view up to a very appealing roof terrace.
