    Very Nice! Great to see the before and after photographs Herman.

  2. Hi! I am Dr Nicholas Exadaktylos. I visited Mount Athos in September/October 1971, then 24 years old. I shot 736 slides with a Nikon F camera, 20mm, 35mm, 50mm and 135mm Nikkor lenses.About 150 of them are in Panoramio. I know Panoramio is closing in November. I would like very much to contribute to your blog by uploading permanently these photos in a site of my own. Please reply.

      That would be great! You would need a slide scanner to put them in a digital format. There are many very good and free cloud services to download them to. Flickr is one with very large storage, is free, has the ability to create folders, edit, write descriptions, etc. I look forward to seeing your photographs someday. Sean

      Dear Nicholas Exadaktylos.
      It would be fantastic if you made a site/blog of your own with you very interesting photo collection. You can use WordPress or another platform. We will make a link and some publicity on our weblog. Feel free to use our way of showing the photo’s (numbered posts with app. 7 till 15 photo’s at the time and a short story). Is this what you had in mind?

  3. Dear Sean, Herman and Wim.

    Hi! I am Nicholas again. Than you very much for your reply. All the slides are already scanned with an Epson Perfection V750 Pro scanner.
    The address above is the place to start looking for these pictures. The pictures are going to be grouped in geographical parts. Right now there is only one picture uploaded, with the geographical coordinates to locate it. Please allow me some time to upload the rest. I need to check with the (remains of) Panoramio.


    PS http://www.steniotes.gr is a site about the village I come from, Stenies, Andros island.
