An enchanting place

Agios Pavlos, Crete 2011.

Agios Pavlos is a remote coastal village close to Agia Galini in the south of Crete; a place where you are woken by the sound of cockerels at dawn, the water supply is fresh spring water from the mountains plus several miles of unspoiled beaches.   I first went there 10 yrs ago to YogaPlus and met my good friend Cushla.  She went back to work a season the following year and met her husband Bruce who was a guest at the time.  They then went back to work, as a couple, the following year and subsequently returned to Agios Pavlos for their honeymoon a few years later….this place holds special meaning for them.  This month we all returned again to Agios Pavlos including their two young children……all of us connected by place.

A relationship with art

This set of photos for my ‘relationship’ assignment was the least successful of my 3 shoots.  Two other options fell through so this was a last minute alternative.  Its quite interesting how people relate to art……..Elliot Erwitt also plays with this theme and has shot some exceptional images on the subject.   I don’t think my images  are successful  as ‘relationship’ images, nor are they a patch on Erwitt’s but I quite like them as candid street photography images.
