Photographer's Note

Florina has remained like a strong imprint in my memory for many reasons. I found the pace of life, particularly in the morning, comforting: people moved slowly, chatted with neighbours, or were sweeping the footpaths in front of their shops, children walked to school (see earlier photo of Florina)rugged up against the morning's nippy freshness. Over the town the morning sun bathed the hills, buildings and streets in its gentle light, while souvlaki shops and bakeries already filled the air with appetizing aromas.

I told my sister about this charming place and a few years later on her way to Yugoslavia she stopped there. It was summer.Unfortunately Florina did not embrace her as it did me.Maybe it was the time of the year that made it special when I visited.
