Photographer's Note

A shot of a refinery, right beside the National Road Athens-Corinth, very close to the Isthmus of Corinth. I 've seen it hundreds of times, when returning from trips around Greece. Many times I thought I should stop by and take a shot, but I was always leaving it for some other time, because I am always returning late, many hours after my favourite "blue" hour. This time, I was late again (I had passed that "blue" hour in Heraion, ***CHECK HERE*** ), but I decided to give it a try anyway! I like the result of the b&w conversion, but for anyone who wants to compare, here's the ***COLOUR VERSION IN WORKSHOP***.

The title comes from the debut album of o Norwegian rock band with the spanish (!!!) name, Madrugada, released on the 30th of August of 1999. That album contained one of my favourite songs of the last 10 years, titled "Strange colour blue" (***LISTEN TO THE SONG***).

HERE ARE THE LYRICS:
"Blue
Strange colour blue
Sixteen tons on the moon
Blue
Strange colour blue
Coming back to you
Pushing through
Pouring rain
Nearly there
Nearly there
Oh blue

Blue
Strange colour blue
Sixteen tons on the moon
Hey little mister driver man
Keep your head up
We are nearly there
I am racing
Outside and below myself
Nearly forgot myself there
Nearly there
Yeah

Oh everybody's sleeping now
An industrial silence singing
And the rain will keep hammering down from over head
Now there's a blue, blue strange colour blue
Let me dream of me and you
Oh how the rain keeps hammering down
Pour

Oh running down the window
Like a vein on my arm
Oh running down the window
Like a vein on my arm
Yeah

This is how we do it
This is how we do it
This is how we do it
Nearly there

Oh blue
Strange colour, a colour blue
Yeah, a colour blue
Oh, blue blue blue yeah
Strange colour, colour blue
Yeah, a colour blue
Oh blue blue blue yeah
Strange colour, a colour blue
Oh a colour blue

Hey little mister driver man
Keep your head up
We are nearly there
Nearly there
