Travel Film: Nαύπλιο






I can’t believe a whole year has gone by since I took these photos in the Peloponnesian town of Nafplio.  I spent a week at my cousin’s summer home there while on school vacation.  The house, which had already been closed up for the winter, was an endless source of fascination for me and my camera, with crisp Greek light flooding in from one side and a little army of interesting things to capture posing in the half dark of the house interior.  I passed the week in a strange kind of meditation by myself, working on still lives, hiking up to the acropolis, and jumping in the increasingly frigid sea.  Since getting to the Peloponnese from the islands requires a lengthy combination of ferries, cabs, buses and walking, I didn’t feel like lugging my 5D with me.  These were all taken on my little 35mm Pentax K-1000 with Portra 160 film.

    Oh. You know I love these pictures! I remember when you finally got the film back and we looked through them together in the digi lab. I still have the test print of that last shot hanging on my wall. Miss you!
