The bus to our final destination Skala Eressou, a beautiful town on the south-western coast goes only once a day so we spent some hours in the capital, mostly strolling around or sitting in one of the many chic bars because we were too tired to do anything useful (Sleeping on a ferry is not very easy. If you don’t want to pay the higher price for a cabin you should bring a pillow and a blanket and be prepared to sleep on the floor).
The bus trip to Skala Eressou was a great way to get motion-sick because the island consists of several mountains, it goes up and down and one curve follows another. Skala Eressou is a beautiful small town with a nice beach and lots of restaurants and bars on stakes along the beach. On the eastern part of the town there is a cute little port and on the way there you can see several sculptures.

On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
In the early part of the 19th century, lantern shows were the equivalent of movies. Photographs were hand-printed or transferred on glass plates, which were then projected on to a wall or cloth screen.
