Bridges to Babylon



/update 2015/ I reedited this shot about a year ago, as I found the original post-editing work to be too harsh. Too much contrast had obscured much of the detail of the scene. 

Night of echoes, missing faces
missing steps of missing men
in a dream of grey old shadows
Smoking cigarettes with ghosts
on the bridge of broken leaves.

Kirlian Camera – Wasted Bridges

Shot exactly 35 minutes after Underneath the Veil, this place was our original destination and this view was exactly the view we were hoping for. At least for me that is. Easy to understand why upon seeing it I completely forgot to keep on nagging about why we didn’t linger a bit more at the previous location.

It was a magical morning indeed; everything was perfectly still and silent, except for the water calmly running past us. We were lucky enough to find a spot were the river was shallow enough to allow us to set up right in the middle of it. Looking back I think this was the last totally perfect magical morning of our Easter vacation. Right after that my tonsillitis kicked in and I started swallowing hot coals which significantly diminished the pleasure of the days to follow. However, looking back I definitely wish I could go back and do it all over again... even the painful bit.

Hope you enjoy your visit here!

Location: Kokkorou bridge, Epirus, Greece
