Save Place
Atatürk Mh., Ephesus Archaeological Museum, Uğur Mumcu Sevgi Yolu, 35920 Selçuk/İzmir, Turkey
The grand Library of Celsus in the ancient Greek city of Ephesus.
Save Place
Hacıahmetler Mevkii Bitez, Pomelan Cd. No:32, 48470 Bodrum/Muğla, Turkey
The Bodrum Peninsula in Turkey is a place for sunning yourself. Bitez is a bit quieter and smaller than the town of Bodrum, but I could tell it was still a "happening" place. I had the good fortune to be there at a quieter time, early May. The sun...
Save Place
Kalkan Belediyesi, 07580 Kaş/Antalya, Turkey
I know...potatoes! But, I love that they have all this dirt on them and look so natural, unlike our potatoes in the States that are al so clean and polished up. My mom refers to this image as "the dirty spuds" shot.
Save Place
10400 Ayvalık/Balıkesir Province, Turkey
I loved the varying looks of the Turkish people. This man was no different. I walked around his stand, filled with lovely fruit and veg, but found myself watching him in his tweed jacket and hat. It was May, but it was cool. As he went to light a...

I took this image the first morning I woke up at the Karia Bel' Hotel in Bozburun, Turkey (a small, quiet town of about 2000). The Aegean Sea was like glass, so still. There was a perfect reflection of the sailboat. It was a moment!
Save Place
Olympos, Yazır Mahallesi, 07350 Olympos/Kumluca/Antalya, Turkey
The ruins of Olympos are very cool. Unlike some of the other ruins in Turkey, they sit back in the trees. You kind of feel like Indiana Jones as you walk through them. the thicker vegetation, waterways and uncleared ruins. It was one of the...
Save Place
Istanbul, Turkey
One morning outside Sultanahmet I saw what I believe to be a suffi. He looked somewhat like a Turkish version of Santa Claus (which was odd because it was late December), but I don't really know what else he would be with that beard.
Save Place
Atatürk Mh., Artemis Tapınağı, 35920 Selçuk/İzmir, Turkey
The historic city of Ephesus is a must if you are going to Turkey. It is amazing! You walk down worn stone paths that the ancient people once walked. The library is a definite highlight as it was one of the major buildings of the city. I wanted to...
Save Place
Gelemiş Mahallesi, 07975 Kaş/Antalya, Turkey
I was staying in Gelemis (Patara), Turkey and took a drive with some new friends over to Kalkan on market day. There were tons of fresh fruit and veg, clothing, carpets, housewares, jewelry...anything you could possibly want or need. This woman...
Save Place
Sultan Ahmet Mahallesi, Atmeydanı Cd. No:7, 34122 Fatih/İstanbul, Turkey
Adorned with more than 20,000 blue handcrafted İznik tiles, stained-glass windows, and the golden brushstrokes of a 17th-century calligrapher, the Blue Mosque is the legacy of Sultan Ahmet I (1590–1617). The young sultan audaciously wished...
Save Place
Sultan Ahmet Mahallesi, Ayasofya Meydanı, 34122 Fatih/İstanbul, Turkey
Walk into Hagia Sophia (Aya Sofya) and look up to the heavens to see why so many conquerors and their respective religions claimed this basilica turned mosque turned museum as their own. Visitors will swoon over the Byzantine gilded mosaics,...
