Turkey in black and white

Info for the techies: I used a Bronica ETR-Si with an 80 mm lens, no filter. Many of the images were shot mid-day, resulting in a high-contrast look. The film was Kodak T-Max 400, normal processing. The only manipulations were done in-darkroom, unless otherwise stated, and are mainly of the burning and dodging variety.

Didyma is the site of a temple to Apollo, the deity of the Delphic oracle. According to All About Turkey, the temple was the third largest in the ancient world. It is marked by its enormous columns, some of which are pictured below.

Columns at Didyma


Seljuk, Turkey
Seljuk is a town on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, in the province of Izmir (formerly known as Smyrna). We stayed there for three days, as there is a lot to see and do in and around it – it is home to the basilica of St. John the Apostle, and is close to Ephesus, Priene, Miletus, and Didyma- and we found the entire experience to be charming. We stayed at a lovely little pension, run by a carpenter with an interesting take on interior decoration. One evening, I drank raki (think ouzo) with the owner and his family; before we left, his sister taught me how to crochet.

All of these images were made with a Canon PowerShot A520. No manipulations.
