… but Greece was kind enough to offer us some golden rays of warm sunlight though it was mid-December. Hence Vanessa and me took that chance on a late Sunday afternoon and drove for a quick photo-shoot to the woods in Kessariani.
I used my Hasselblad, a 100mm 3.5f lens and a roll of Agfa Portrait 220 film. The natural ambient light was used as only lightsource.
Matching the ice-cold temperatures, Vanessa chose to wear a warm outfit: poncho and fake fur.
Catch me if you can.

The shooting was spontaneous, so there was no real concept behind it but the results turned out to have this 60s – 70s American-vintage feel that I really like.
My favorite photograph from this shooting.
Time, time time, see what’s become of me
While I looked around for my possibilities
I was so hard to please
But look around leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter
Look around leaves are brown
There’s a patch of snow on the ground
“A Hazy Shade of Winter” Simon & Garfunkel, 1966
The old Rolleiflex was a perfect match to the vintage look.
Just when the sun began to set, the film was full and we headed home for cup of warm, strong coffee – always a perfect ending to a photo-shoot.
