This season is officially history.
Speaking of which, the medium of film gives this photo a nice vintage vibe.
Lastly, I choose the skyline + clubhouse as a backdrop but I lucked out that the field was empty and the sky was overcast (making for some gentle lighting despite it being midday).

I forgot to mention, it’s a Double Stroke.

Thank you my friend.
I hope this message finds you and your family well in such strange times.
As for me, due to some less than pleasant personal circumstances, I have moved back to the US to live for the first time in 16 years, and while the move wasn’t really preferred or expected, I have embraced it as an opportunity to take a new look at the country through eyes, ears and tastebuds, and of course also through camera (the Monochrom).
That being said, before setting off for North America, I was able to sneak in a short photographic trip to Crete, which I had never before visited and was an appropriate destination for more reasons than one in terms of helping me fight some personal demons. It was a satisfying way to say a temporary farewell to a beautiful continent, the fourth on which I have lived and worked.
If you would be so kind, I would welcome the opportunity to show these to your readers (and fellow photographers):
Most important of all, stay safe and keep shooting……. photography is a wonderful tonic for staying sane these days.

Included in the last set of photos I posted, is this shot of our son:
…which reminded me of a similar one taken eight years ago:
In this older photo,
… it’s a few seconds before the sunset vs. a few minutes
… the camera differs (M9 vs. M3)
… the lens differs (Leica 50/1.4 vs. Voigtländer 50/1.5)
And the 4000 km distance separating the moments seems tiny in comparison to the chasm of time.
