Photographer's Note

Displayed here is a traditional building in the mountain village of Agios Lavrendios. Itís situated on 700m high on the flanks of mount Pelion on the Pelion peninsula . Itís near one of the many brooks and little cascades that are on this beautiful green mountain. A dilapidated water-powered olive press is nearby.

The upper parts of Mount Pelion are often shrouded in clouds as is the case here.

The pictures I took in this and other gorgeous mountain villages in Pelion all stand apart form my other pics of Greek villages. This because of the sometimes strange paintschemes, the typical architecture, the big amount of constructed space that is reserved for public places as church- and town squares and taberna terraces. Another speciality is the road infrastructure. Itís almost exclusively formed by narrow and steep and twisting stone path on which donkeys and mules, laden with bricks for building sites and beverages for the taberna are a very common site.

Παράξενες εικόνες (Paraxenes eikones , Strange pictures) is the 2004 album of the Greek songstress Anna Vissi
