Greece in Mono 44

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks indeed for your great comments, lovely votes, wonderful awards and; enhancing mod.
Today, the last of my Samos images leading with a rework of a previous lead image. Samos is a relatively small island with lots of surprises. Sadly, the refugee situation does tend to tarnish Samos Town which already suffers from lack of investment to keep up with the needs and expectations of modern day tourism. (Which, hopefully, will return sooner rather than later.) However, much nicer places can be found just a short bus ride away. My lead image, like others in the series, was taken in the old town, mostly derelict and uninhabited but; a photographers dream...

Up next: A mega set from Santorini.Smile

All the best to all and take care out there.

wonderful set....V11 for me please....V10 is not technically a mono but a tinted mono Smile
13 Jun 2020 7:34AM
There are those who would argue that, ee.Wink
For me, mono means different shades of one colour although most would relate mono to black and white which technically isn't true because; they are images made up of shades of grey with the black and white being at the extreme ends.Smile
Another super set

Lovely smile in v22

And I see you've used one of your trademark "girls from behind" images as your lead this time! Grin

A couple of trademarks here, but the main upload is the star, essence of a way of life.
Sorry I haven't been commenting much lately, inertia has set in big time here...

Intentional on your part or not, John, I just love the contrast between the lead image and the first version.
V17 is also a favourite...

V17 most 'different' I think, John. And the opener is excellent!

Another cracking set John, they're getting bigger Smile Takes a while to look at them all but it's worth it.
V17 is my choice for today, just like it...
Have a great weekend.

all excellent, with the lead holding top notch position for this set, and v.22 showing a made-up edition of Franka Potente in Run, Lola, Run (one of my favourite movies ever, strongly recommend)

I'm another one who favours the lead image. Poor old girl with a sore hip. A great set with lots to see. And the pretty girl ending it all.

Love the way the image displays everyday life and the choice of b&w works really well.

Love V17 - lovely portrait John and stop showing me shops - can't wait to get to shopping centres
if there are any shops left.
A great tour of Samos - I hope they do get funding to keep the tourists coming.
