The story behind the image
A late summer trip to Kos island in Greece is attractive because the temperatures are lower than in July and August where it can get really hot. Also, it is less crowded and it’s easy to spontaneously get tickets for excursions.
One afternoon we decided to go to the vulcano of Nisiros, a small island next to Kos. Departure was at Kardamena harbor, and we were a few minutes early, so I shot this photo as I love the bright colorful boats. Looking at recent images from Kardamena, the harbor has not changed a lot over the past three decades. Lovely.
By the way, this image is a scan from a Kodak PhotoCD which was the best way to get affordable high-end slide scans in the 1990s. While many of my Kodak PhotoCD scans are not good enough for publishing (and needed a new, fresh scan), this one is. Maybe, I’ll do a fresh scan of this image as well. When I have the time. In the future. Who knows when. Until then, I’m happy with this image. 🙂
