What will a selfie look like in another 100 years or more?






Every morning as I sit on my balcony and look up at the castle of Kefalos I see people standing on the edge of the ruins surveying the bay of Kamari and far out across the plain to the Dikaios  mountains and beyond just as they must have done throughout ancient times. They stand there in their shorts and t-shirts gazing out for the sheer fun of it, taking photos and selfies and you can’t help wonder at the innocence of such behaviour and yet give a moments thought to all the times through the ages others have stood in that same place. I imagine Knights of St John, Romans, Ottomans, Greeks, Italians, Germans among so many all standing and looking out for so many different reasons. I wonder how many people throughout history have also had the time just to enjoy and take pleasure in the view. A great place to soak up history and stand in the feet of others.
