Nice one Jeff and I especially ike the colour contrast between the flowers and panelling. Shame the picture on the wall isn't straight though.

...or, since this is Greece, shame the wood panelling isn't vertical?

No, Warwick, it's the camera that wasn't absolutely level.

Sorry Jeff, but your photo needs rotating anti-clockwise. Measure the distance between the edge of a panel and the edge of the photo at top and bottom and you'll see a difference of about 0.7mm** for the panelling to be vertical (which shows the old map is even more off level) which I didn't like to mention before.

** Maybe a tiny fraction less. I've a pretty good eye and have a thing about horizons being level and buildings in photos vertical, unless they're so out of kilter it has to be deliberate for effect (sometimes difficult to get both in the same photo here, as Warwick hinted). On one of my old website pages I had an argument with 'Er Indoors about a picture at the top of a page not aligning with another towards the bottom. I won: there was a misalignment of 2 pixels over about 4500px separating the pics.

Whatever, I still think it's an excellent photo.

It is a lovely photo. Which is what matters in the end.
