I should be finishing up my March For Our Lives post. Instead I got distracted by some old photos of Turkey. I taught English in Istanbul from 2000-2002. Incredible people, city, and country. For a while I had the notion of charting a course for retirement in a small Turkish town on the Mediterranean, something like Ayvalik. That’s no longer in the plans. But I hope to visit again – I have always felt a strong connection to Turkey, and I would love to dive into that fantastic Ottoman/Turkish cuisine again.
I scanned a few of the photos today. This is by no means a photo essay or a travel piece, but I figured I’d go ahead and post some of the photos. Perhaps eventually I will get all of my photos and negatives scanned and work on a more cohesive piece.
I think I shot all of these on my Nikon 8008S. They’re not very good, but they bring back memories. Some of them may have been on disposable cameras, but I don’t think so.
