The Swedish part of Esso started already back in 1896 but hasn’t been in Sweden for many years, they where actually bought by a Norwegian company called Statoil whish is (was) big in northern Europe for a couple of years. But Statoil is now sold as well… to a Canadian company, but the name Statoil still remains.
What happened with Esso in Greece I don’t know, but the petrol station on the picture was closed (I assume), and it looked liked it had been for a long time.
Went to Greece, or to be more exact to Crete this summer with my camera and my girlfriend.. We rented a car and just drove without any specific target in mind, just wanted to see the country side and not only the beaches.. And suddenly we found this nice (I suppose) old village. Mm yea, I have done some minor tweaks of the photo in snapseed
This is the “L’ ancien pont de Poissy” or the old bridge in Poissy as they say over there. The bridge or what´s left of it is around 1000 years old. This bridge was important during the WW2 and sadly enough it was destroyed sometime back in 1944.
This was actually the view from my kitchen window for a while ago, the camera wasnt far away.. so..
Still taken from my kitchen window.. nearly a year later..
