Photographer's Note


It’s probably been a while after the last ship was build in Agia Kiriaki on the tip of the gorgeous Pelion peninsula. The wharf is mainly used as a maintenance wharf now and has an important function for the region. Agia Kiriaki is the port of Trikeri which is located 150 m higher up the mountain. The quality of the fish the local fishermen bring in is famous, and so are the restaurants where you can relish them.

The coastal road to Agia Kiriaki is great – it offers fine views of the rocky coast line, some small islands and the Pagasitic Gulf.

Shipbuilding is an Elvis Costello song from his “Punch the clock” album, released on Ryko/Demon in 1984. A live rendition of the song is here.
The song is not upbeat – and since the feeling behind this post surely is, the fit isn't perfect. But I couldn’t pass up the chance to use the title of one of my fav Elvis Costello tracks ;-)

My friends, this shot was captured almost 4 years ago and will be my last upload for some weeks. Its posting celebrates our return to Greece and Pelion in a few days. I wish y’all a fine start of the summer! And take care.

The PCS3 work flow: altered the format from landscape to portrait by cropping, altered the saturation, contrast, curves and levels for the whole pic and some elements separately, using different layers, enhanced the edges, USM-ed, added a frame and resized, sharpened the edges on a 60% transparent layer and did a gentle USM (1,1px, 18%) again on that layer.
