Series: My Old B&W Film Creations (For Film Friday) - PORTRAITS & PEOPLE
August 1975, holidays in Mykonos, and where I take pictures of Paraportiani, suddenly comes, sunburned, with green eyes, orange dress and a disarming smile and tells me: "Do you like to take a picture of me?". Oh ... I'm 22 years old, I'm finished in the 4th year of the Archiecture School, made man, you suppose, but .. I'm staying dumb! There was nothing of what passed through my mind for seconds until I answered her, it seemed to me that it was time. I simply took 10 photos, I do not remember asking her name, from the daze I had not asked her to see her again. Just a memory!

Encounters like this add beauty to life. They put a special burn on sunsets and makes night air smell better.
