Windy Day

Winter is slowly showing up and the cold is late this year. We still walk with relatively little protection. So here is a picture from January. The place is the famous Kordon, the name given to the Izmir's shoreline promenade.

The last of the Immortal

Olive Trees are considered immortal. New shoots coming out of the roots, the tree seems able to duplicate himself and thus open the legend to the never dying tree. This one is several hundred years old, who really knows? How many lifes begenning or ending has he see? I wonder who is the keeper, the Kangal dog or the Olive tree?

I generally prefer not too much modify or alternate my takes, it is mainly contrast masking through layers much more like we use to do in the darkroom, but with much more amplitude and latitude now. But here the whiteness of this crate of empty “ayran” bottles with the random patterns of the red straws attracted my eyes and my lens.

For friends not familiar with Turkish food ayran is a beverage made of local yoghurt salt and water, it is healthy and nourishing and…. we drink tons of it :)
