I found some scans from old prints from the summer of 1990, an amazing summer with my brother, sister and cousins. Shot against the sun with my old Zenit 11. Bad photographs (it had been one of my first rolls… ever) but great moments. I wish I find the negatives to see better results from my scanner.

Abandoned factory site….. photo shoot has ended. I am heading to my car walkind down the dirt road. I hear an old bike approaching. Its a scavenger with some parts loaded on his bike running down the barren dirt road. I needed to get on shot…..

I believe It was worth it.

The Byzantine Church of St Nikolas is situated in the village of Ano Gerakari.

This location has a fantastic view which spreads to the surrounding hills and the plain as far as the castle of Zakynthos.

The sleepy village of Ano Gerakari is still mostly untouched by tourism and is easily reached from the resorts of Alykes, Alikanas and Tsilivi.

The beach Gaidaros Just off the beach of Tsilivi. A part of belonging to the community of Planou and the other belongs to the community of Tragaki. The natural point that separates  it is a river that flows in this creek. A small hill also separates Gaidaros  beach from  Tsilivi beach. Located 8 km northeast of the town of Zakynthos.
Consists of sand and in some places there are a few pebbles. The water is shallow, warm and crystal clear.It is well organized with sun beds and umbrellas and  water sports. It is not very crowded and tourist traffic in the region is strong and which takes place just a few meters from the beach, is considered a quiet beach.

“A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.”
John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath
