In May this year Christian and I enjoyed an oh-so-fleeting but very wonderful trip to the little village of Afitos in Northern Greece. We were there to photograph a lovely wedding and only stayed a couple of days, but we made the most of its beautiful tranquility. The village is nestled on the Aegean coastline and has traditional, narrow stone streets that wind up and down hills, in and out of the warm, soft Greek sunshine. It was the first day of the tourist season when we arrived so we had the combined benefit of open amenities with minimal tourists. We enjoyed delicious food, a relaxing Pina Colada in an empty bar overlooking the deep blue-green sea, beautiful colour & light to inspire us, and the warmest of welcomes everywhere we went. A tiny, perfect piece of heaven.
I shot all photographs on the Contax 645 and processed the film (a combination of Fuji Reala, 400H and Kodak Ektar) back at UK Film Lab on our return home.
