Photo-Aidipsos part 2

OK, from top to bottom:

1. Hopeless at shooting things behind shop windows (part 4) or This guy can’t even frame decently (part 2).

2. Taken last year (2013) with my crappy mobile phone. This wooden camera is inside the shop. Mr. Souliadis Jr. was purist enough to say that “unfortunately the lens is not the original”.

3. 4. 5. 6. Just to accompany this post, some assorted photos taken in Aidipsos, say in the 1950s and 1960s… Found years ago on eBay - I don’t own these photos. As mentioned earlier, Aidipsos is a spa town, renowned for its mineral springs. Ferry boats, a bit more modern than the one in the first photo, are still used to carry passengers and cars from across mainland Greece. The building (Υδροθεραπευτήριον “Οι Άγιοι Ανάργυροι”) evident in the other photos is one of the town’s spas, of course. It’s still around, I think.

Photo-Aidipsos or Hopeless at shooting things behind shop windows (part 3 - part 1 & 2 here and here respectively) or This guy can’t even frame decently (part 1 - although, in my defence, some parked cars were in my way). It’s a bit unclear if I wanted a shot of this photo-shop’s facade or wanted to focus on the old cameras, which included a Rolleiflex, two Retinas and other stuff. This is where, last year, I bought all remaining expired BW film stock. The business was established by the current owner’s grand-father, I think, in the pre-WWII years. Aidipsos being a spa-town, Mr. Souliadis was apparently not the only photographer in town, but I wouldn’t be surprised if in my family’s archives I find a photo or two taken by him.

PS. A periodically posted friendly reminder: This is NOT an “art photography” blog (well - obviously). Dozens of threewheelers and similar junk ahead - be warned.
