Photographer's Note

A September afternoon at the beginning of the beach of Alinda. The beach is one of the longest and most popular on Leros. It makes a long curve (not included, on the left of the frame) and goes on out of the right side of the frame. Behind my point of view is the War Cemetery where soldiers of the British forces who fell during the Battle of Leros rest.
A little off centre, to the left, is the Bellenis Tower, an impressive mansion built more than a century ago by a wealthy intellectual, Parissis Bellenis, from the Lerian community of Cairo. Now the "Tower" is a historic and folk art museum. and sometimes performances are held in its front yard.

Thank you for visiting
