You've had your last regrets
Reached your final depths
Deepest pits
Stepped aside for the world to pass you by
Chose to leave the fear...
You are stuck in a world, deadlocked.

TristaniaĖ Deadlocked [link]


I had fallen in love with this wreck long before I even saw it in real life. Konstantinos's photograph haunted my mind and my imagination so powerfully and for so long that I came to a point where I didnít want to actually see it in case the spell was broken, fearing it would fall short to my expectations.

Left alone to disintegrate on a windblown, misty beach in Peloponnesus, Dimitrios proved to be every bit as enchanting as in my dreams. Haunting and haunted, broken but not yet dead, it still stands upright, a ghostly mirage condemned to travel forever through misty mornings, fiery sunsets and sunrises, through rain and thunderstorms, gloomy skies and starry nights, through time but never through space, never leaving the place thatís been eating it away for almost 30 years now.

I have pictured it in my mind in all of these conditions and if I were living close to it I would have made a point of capturing it in every possible light and weather condition. One thingís for sure: this ship hasnít seen the last of me and neither have you seen the last of it. :nod:
