Özkonak _IMG_5199.jpgI just loved this painted sign for this business - perhaps a machine shop of some type?  Er Demir translates to hand iron - I think.Özkonak _IMG_5202.jpgAnd what’s not to love about this beautiful blue doorway, stone wall and greenery!

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!
