Photographer's Note

The week before, we were on a bus travelling to Monemvassia, and the driver waxed lyrical to us on the journey about "magical Mystras" as he called it. He sounded like a travel guide, which in a way I suppose he was. So the next week, we hired a car and drove over the mountains to Magical Mystras. And so it was. Huge, steep, ruinous, impressive, with monasteries as the only surviving intact buildings. Although modest renovation work was progressing: the donkeys in the picture were carrying building materials, tiles and so on. The tower in the middle distance is I believe, the campanile of Pantanassa Monastery.

Vasilis Protopapas yesterday posted a photograph taken only last week from almost the same spot, so I was inspired to echo his work with mine, taken 14 or 15 years ago. I don't know if it's old enough to qualify as a Kasia Nowak antique!

Neg scanned on a Nikon dedicated film scanner at 4000 dpi, giving a 100mg 16 bit file. Hope you like it!
