Photographer's Note

My previous post showed the beginning of our 2017 trip from Crete (Chania) to Rodos. A table with a view that some of you found quite inviting.

This is an altogether different kind of shot from the same trip, but near the end of it.


SYMI is a mountainous island in the Dodeskanesos. Its economy was traditionally based on shipbuilding and sponge fishing. These days tourism is its main source of income.

Its Italianate harbour is very popular with yachts and really feels like a place that wants to be seen. Symi is pronounced "See me!".

I've obliged and posted some pictures of it.

BUT THIS PICTURE was shot in a rather shabby street leading up from the harbour towards the upper town (the Chora), which is much quieter and you get the best views for free. On the way there is lots of old architecture to admire, beautifully rundown sometimes.

The kid passing by was just my luck, sort of. Always a bit tricky to see how it turns out. In this case I liked it and I was a bit surprised I hadn't included this picture in my travelogue yet.
