Photographer's Note

...had enough of light and shadows, back to colours >:)...


...i was in marmaris last week for a four-day congress. the congress was okay but marmaris was better, despite the weather hotter than hell (much higher than 40C). i even had the chance to visit rhodes for a 30-hours-trip and it was the best part of the whole story...

...this shot was taken in the old town of marmaris, just below the castle, where old houses -both turkish and greek- are trying to survive...



"Marmaris is an important port city and a tourist destination on the Mediterranean coast, located in southwest Turkey, in the Muğla Province.
Marmaris' main source of income for the city is tourism. As opposed to Bodrum, Alaatı or similar Turkish coastal towns, its traditional architectural tissue has been less vividly preserved due to a construction boom of the 1980s, but Marmaris still retains its charm due to the exceptional natural beauty of its location. The district's population is estimated to reach 300,000400,000 people during the tourism season.
It is also a major center for sailing, possessing two major and several smaller marinas. It is a popular wintering location for hundreds of cruising boaters. There are regular ferry services to the Greek island of Rhodes, and large cruise ships call at the port."
