Photographer's Note

The photograph was taken in Ulus at Ankara...

THE SILENT LOOK
...After Ankara became the capital of the newly founded Republic of Turkey, new development divided the city into an old section, called Ulus, and a new section, called Yenişehir. Ancient buildings reflecting Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman history and narrow winding streets mark the old section. The new section, now centered around Kızılay, has the trappings of a more modern city: wide streets, hotels, theaters, shopping malls, and high-rises. Government offices and foreign embassies are also located in the new section.

Eşimle birlikte Ankara Kalesi'nden aşağıya doğru, arabayla gidiyorduk. Işıklara geldiğimizde kırmızı yanıyordu. Heykele doğru baktım. Benim iin kaırılmayacak bir fırsattı. Hemen kadraja aldım ve deklanşre bastım.
