Ruins on the Ground - Ephesus, Turkey
To go up and touch a piece of a building, a piece that was a work of art, was one of the most profound experiences of my trip to Turkey. How could this be 2000 years old (older?) and still be intact? How is it that I am allowed to touch it, feel it? Feel the smooth marble. Feel the intricacies of the carvings. Ephesus provided me with going back in time and seeing, touching, feeling...imagining...a life back in the 1st Century BC. How wonderful it must have been to have been surrounded by such beautiful buildings. This image is probably my favorite from Ephesus. Whatever you do, don't miss Ephesus on your trip to Turkey.
