A Seasonal Visitor

Late summer sees the watermelon vendor set up his stall a short walk out of the Amboise Gate, Rhodes Old Town, Greece. He, and his watermelons, come from the village of Apolakkia, about 80 kilometers to the south.

Scorched Earth

On 1 September, a fire started (likely by a carelessly discarded cigarette) on Monte Smith, above Rhodes town, Greece. It took hold quickly in the dry heat of late summer and, fanned by the wind, cut a swathe through the vegetation in the area. I took this photograph nine days later, the air still thick with the smell of ash.

Light Relief

For a final Saturday-swim that day, the salty-feisty sea-dog and her fine-warm human took me to the Light House beach at Kiotari. Earlier, we’d ventured into the blue and then relaxed cheek to cheek. The freddo cappuccino, the laid-back soundtrack, the soothing shade and the cooling sea provided the ultimate chill on a hot afternoon.

Into the Blue

One September Saturday, together with a good friend and her salty-feisty sea-dog, we went swimming here.

At Lachania, on the island of Rhodes, Greece, the beach is close enough to the village to take its name and distant enough to keep its integrity.

One Midsummer Night

In June 2013: a garden party, dress code white, at the Villa Rees (or Alice/ Aliki), Ialyssos, Rhodes, Greece. The sun set, the wine flowed, the jazz played and friendships were made.
