Unfortunately it's the only photos I have before they were rebuilt. I only wish I had started shooting a bit earlier!
Thanks god our friends are doing so for more than 20 years. For another time I'm using some great photos from Frankie's archive ;)

I guess you refer to my 2002 photos, OK, we know you're shooting for ages :mrgreen: at least when I met it, was still orange...

I see some nice DB Bm at the background, did you take any photos or you were sparing the film?

BarbaPanagos, I am afraid, I did not take a shot of the DB ones. With hind sight I should have done so but I was after the Greek themes then, sorry :(

christo.

PS. Also sorry for showing off. I am sure there are friends (even in this forum) with the much better staff than I have to offer.
