The old minaret adjacent to St Nikolaos church is a perfect reminder of the way the East met the West in the town I made my home, Chania, Crete, Greece.
The photographs I post all help to tell a part of a longer story that focuses on the town and its citizens, whether they are living there now, or have made their home in other parts of the world. As a newer resident, by writing about the town in this way, I am trying to put some order into the chaos that I seem to be confronted with.

An iconic symbol of Hania. We had taken a little boat trip round the harbour and I managed to catch a shot of the lighthouse from a different angle than the norm...
This cafe owner is about to deliver some refreshments to his customers (office and shop workers). The tray is the typical method used in the inner parts of the city by traditional kafeneia and refreshment bars which do deliveries.
The most important thing to note about this man is that he looks cheerful - his face is always smiling whenever I see him.
