You've had your last regrets
Reached your final depths
Stepped aside for the world to pass you by
Chose to leave the fear...
You are stuck in a world, deadlocked.
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 didn’t 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 that’s 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 thing’s for sure: this ship hasn’t seen the last of me and neither have you seen the last of it. For *KirlianCamera, the man that started this travel beyond the darkness and into the light
