Please do let me know in case you have any question about the site, and by all means, enjoy it.
Small remark: the geotag seems to be placed in the sea, which is why the country of Greece is not detected from the photo. Is this intentional? Can you have a look at it? Posted 4 years ago
Thanks for your nice words. I will look at the geotag. Posted 4 years ago
