I think this may be a view of Piraeus, Greece (hopefully my friend Evan will tell us if this is correct). If so, the photo was taken in 1976. Somewhat faded 35-mm color slide was copied using a digital camera and contrast, etc. adjusted as well as I could.

· "z" or click on image, as Peggy C suggests, for a larger view on black.
(thank you Peggy).

That's a document ! Times have completely changed until now. I don' know if it's really Piräus. Maybe a view of the port of an island in the Cyclades. I know Piräus quite well but I don't know the hills in the back. Maybe Náxos ? Anyway I like the picture very much !!! I travelled to the Greek Islands many times. This picture forces my memories !

Thank you so much for your comment. I was in Athens in 1976 and, as far as I remember, I did not venture too far afield which is why I thought it might be Piraeus, but I do not remember at all. I should have marked the slides at the time, but at the time I didn't think it would be possible for me to forget :) Thank you again.

Les couleurs, typiques des anciennes diapositives, donnent un cachet particulier qui convient bien à cette photo.... Jolie vue sur le port

The faded colours and prominence of blues give it a nostalgic air...

Many thanks. I did try to tone down the blue but evidently I didn't go far enough :) I now tried to tone it down a bit more (but not too much I hope).

Katakolon perhaps? Lovely shot wherever it is- hope we find out for certain!

Many thanks. As I replied to Ulrich John above, in 1976 I was in Athens for a short time, and, although my memory of the period is virtually obliterated, I don't believe that I ventured too far from Athens.

No problem at all its a great period piece and it looked vaguely familiar to me-having said that 1976 is a while ago and things have probably changed a lot so you are most probably right in your thinking
