weekly photo challenge : beyond

Here’s my response to the WordPress weekly photo challenge. You can check out the guidelines for the challenge here. My first photo hints at shopping beyond the arch. This was my first exposure to shopping in Istanbul and I can remember the excitement as I approached this entrance. It was a small bazaar area – a good place to start – not as overwhelming as the Grand Bazaar!

The next photo shows some of Istanbul beyond a row of rooftop chimney pots.

Here’s a photo that was taken at Aphrodisia. I like the view of the hills beyond the ruins.

My last photos show a shepherd’s tent – viewed from outside a rather makeshift looking affair, but beyond the exterior a warm and inviting home.

I thought it would be appropriate to go beyond my recent photos for this challenge, all the way to 2005. Of course I love any excuse to go through my photos of  my Turkish travels.

    1. Having tea in that tent was a highlight of the trip. I found so many generous welcoming people in Turkey. I NEED to return sooner rather than later! Thanks for stopping by.
