When I was younger we always holidayed in the UK, or France and rarely, Austria. Then the interail days came, and I added a few more countries. When I started work properly after qualifying, my then partner suggested the Greek islands, and I thought ‘why not?’… I found it a marvellous experience, so much that was a bit different, and rich for photography with seemingly eternal sunshine, if not a tad hot at times! We, the mad English ones, would venture out in the noonday sunshine, whilst practically everyone else was having siestas in the cool indoors.
This image (one of my favourites from those adventures), I think, conjures up the searing heat, the slower pace of life, and, of course the different way of life… those poor donkeys
Now, this is a ‘One’ because there is a single human….the donkeys don’t count. My rules. But who knows, I might do some ‘One’s or ‘Two’s with animals one day….or then again, I might not…..
But what I will do is gather up a few more images from the Greek Islands, when I have got the old computer to behave and can scan some more transparencies… I have hundreds and hundreds from different places, and I suspect that job will never be completed.
