Sunset on the bay

The summer is late, we have to do with a cold wind and 18-20 celsius. Not really what we are accustomed to. But the bay in the evening and the dimmed sunlight is as always stunning.

Today is Children's day. The first Festival day to be consecrated to children. Here are two pictures to illustrate this day. Note that the second has a second meaning for the one not accustomed to Turkish football. The colour of the kid's kite are the one of Galatasaray, one of the most successful club in the country but currently in free fall. The kid flies his club's colour high.

Izmir Library

Izmir was once built of 2 storey buildings. Some banks, rich businessmen stone houses or administrations rose over the small Aegean's houses and the firemen watch tower had a sight of the entire city. The watch tower today only stood in the shadow of neighbours’ tower and watch at the hundreds of thousands of book kept in the converted fire-brigade buildings.

Clouds on the bay

The Izmir City's shore is about 40 km long. This shot is taken close to the north end of the seafront and shows the Crowne Plaza Hotel's tower, situated almost at the south-east end. The weather has dramatic colourless shades on this day therefore the choice of a black&white rendering.
The Izmir heights are green and covered with trees, this old oak marks the a small hill top while I wonder where the old path and the electric wire may lead.
