Dreaming of Turkey...

I'VE just come home from a wonderful holiday in Turkey and I'm depressed.

Just look at the view that I have left behind, wouldn't you be depressed too?

I will be downloading the hundreds of pictures I took over the next couple of days onto my fickr account and you can see them all then.

You'll be able to see views of Ephesus, Kusadasi, a market in Celchuk and the bazaar outside our apartment. And all are wonderful. But for now here's a taster.

Waiting for the sun, well waiting for the plane actually. Delays are a bollox.

There were a lot of ‘snip’ parades where a young man who has just come of age is paraded around on a donkey after getting snipped.

Then outside Celchuk there is the most amazing place Ephesus. I will do a post on this but here’s a little taster.

Everything is so artistic. The way the cucumbers are laid.... why don't our supermarket ones have that same aura? The colours... and I love the shot of the market through the roof.

Looks like a wonderfuk feast of a holiday. Welcome back :-)

As always the pics are fantastic, you really have an eye for framing and composition.
At least now that I have a digital camera I can see that some of my pics are crap before I waste money on having them developed
