These photographs are from my first visit to the island of Crete in 1990, can’t believe that’s 27 years ago !!!! All the images are from an Olympus OM2n film camera which I had just bought before the holiday. The film is Fujichrome 100.
Crete – Rethymnon Harbour
Church of Four Martyrs Rethymnon
One of the main reasons to visit Crete was to walk theSamaria Gorge(click the link if you would like to find out more)

Approaching The Walk
My ex waving at me, in other words Get a Move On !
It was quite rough going in some parts of the gorge.
End of The Line – Agia Roumeli
It was a scorching hot day, I was glad when we reached Agia Roumeli so we could have a drink and a bite to eat, not to mention resting my feet. We caught the ferry from here back to the transport. I’m not very good on boats especially the flat bottomed variety, the Mediterranean can get quite choppy and it did, but it was an experience not to be missed.
The remaining images from my Konica AA35, considering the film got stuck in the processing machine at the shop I’m surprised so many came out OK.
Urban Pampas – Again !

I could barely see an image on the Fancy Iron shot but the Nikon scanner managed to extract what there was. Really impressed with the Konica and with Kodak Colorplus. Another roll is already in the camera, hopefully it will have an uneventful journey through the processing machine when I take it in.
Some of my favourite subject matter for the last few images, Old Garages, Electricity Sub Stations, Trees, and of course Doors. Really surprised how the kodacolor performed considering it was more than 10 years out of date. I have mainly used Kodak films for colour over the years, and really miss Ektachrome.
This is the distant view from my spare bedroom window, an excuse to try out my Hoya 300mm lens that I haven’t used for years. There used to be more of these housing blocks over to the left but they were demolished a few years ago. If they would only demolish the remaining four on a clear day I would have a lovely view of Bradgate Park !
