Fonissa Waterfall - Καταράχτης στη Φόνισσα



My name is Kostas Kranis and I live in Athens, Greece. I work as a telecomms engineer in a multinational, and spent most of my spare time with a camera in my hands.

I started photography 5 years ago, (2000) with a digital camera, but I soon realised that what I really liked was the classic B/W photography. So, I got myself a Nikon F-65 (N-65 for the States) and now I shoot with my FM or FM2n. ...

Donkey icon of the Karavaitiko Symposium.

Designed by graphic artist Lindsay Cretha (Kritharis) Katharos, now residing in Berry, NSW, in the 1970's.

The laconic donkey, meant to compliment the two previous donkey entries in this section, captures the quiet and leisurely lifestyle of Karavas perfectly.

Donkey, with saddles. Karavas. 1994.

Looking across two beautifully crafted sumari, saddles, to a grazing donkey, and a view across Karavas.

The saddles belonged to our neighbour in Karavas, Irini Voulgaris.

I do hope that examples of these sumari have been preserved for posterity.

Voulgari donkey, Karavas, 1994.

During the pre-automotive period, the most important animal on Kythera was the donkey.

There are very few working donkeys left on Kythera now.

In 1994, our neighbours in Karavas, Voulgari, and his wife Irini, maintained about 5 donkeys, which they housed just above the Tzortzopoulos Hlihlis patriko spiti in Karavas.

This is one of those very fine animals grazing. Note old man Voulgari's coat strung across the sumari, or saddle.

Hunting dog chasing a hare.

The picture is from a small, 16-page tourist book of the island, issued, in the 1950's, or 1960's. (Page 16, of 16).

[The photograph is of equally poor quality in the book, but I enjoy it because it captures a mood.]

Called A Trip To Kythera. The Island Of Venus, it was written by Helen Kaloperinos.

Helen dedicated the book "..to my dear family and all the Kytherians".

The caption reads:
