Photographer's Note

Yesterday I was for few hours in Tsotili; it is a village in prefecture Kozani on the hilly region Voion.
You see here the new school and in the background a school- a boarding school in this village. The old one building is built between 1871-1874 with the economical support from the Macedonian fraternal association it had the residence in Constantinople-Istanbul.
Macedonia was still under the Ottoman rules; the old school was built to teach people-kids the Greek letterings, history and culture.
I have two friends they spent their gymnasium school time there in the old school.
Before few years I saw something like the history of the old one school and was written that kids from many regions from Greece finished the gymnasium-lyceum schools in this building.
It was a boarding school until about 20 years ago and now is a building for the municipal offices for the demos=burgh Tsotilion.
Since some decades the new one is the gymnasium and lyceum for the village kids.
I post it as a contrast between the two school buildings from different times.
If you want to see the old school full framed please visit ithere
I gave more sharpness and very little saturation.
Thanks for your comments.
