Shadow of the past.

Shadow in Knossos.
I was disappointed here.
Original ruins are subsumed in concrete and re-building.
There are twenty "guides" to each visitor who will tell you fairy stories for a few quid.

I have to agree with you, Peter, Knossos is a wonderful historical site, but the renovations have taken over the true 'ruins' entirely. This is a place to visit out of the tourist season, when you are able to wander in relative peace, without the hordes of tourists and guides getting in your way. Carol

I recognised this from the thumbnail, Peter - an excellent image of this historical location.
Looks as hot in this image as when I was there in 1993 with a party of children on a school cruise!

Brings back lots of memories Peter. I took a picture of my wife at that very spot in '83. Does produce great shadows though.

Your modern ruins have evoked lots of memories today Peter.
Why didn't they leave things as they were?
Apt title in deed.

Very good! We often argue about restoration against preservation!

Excellent, ruins should remain ruins in my opinion that's what makes them interesting,

A really interesting image of this historic site, Peter, with the perfect title. Nice shadows. I have never been to Knossos but I know that sometimes historic sites, or anywhere in fact that you build your expectations up about, can disappoint. And yet sometimes the least expected places can pleasantly surprise. Smile
