Firca Ceramics_IMG_5560.jpgI usually pick up a small bowl from each of the countries we visit on our yearly trip and Turkey was no different. Picked up a bowl similar to these below but ours had a smooth edge.Firca Ceramics_C03642.jpg

This is a massive bowl displayed in the showroom at Firca Ceramics.  Saw the price tag in Turkish Lira - did a quick calculation - if my memory serves me correctly, I think it worked out to over $10,000 USD.

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!
