Turkish Carpets - Gorgeous!

Turkey - It’s inevitable that you’ll end up at a carpet shop at some point of your visit to Turkey.  And although you may be telling yourself you don’t need a carpet, it’s hard not to walk out with one - either carrying a carpet under arm or having it shipped directly to your home!  We came very close to owning a Turkish carpet!  And perhaps had we not purchsed two gorgeous large carpets on a prior trip to India, we probably would have walked out with carpets shipped home!

Knowing the labour of love that goes into the hand-woven Turkish carpets makes them truly a work of art. Turkish Silk Carpets Collage.jpgWool and cotton carpets.Turkish Rugs collage.jpg

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
