Empty Train Car

New Gallery: American Scenes

Well, it took long enough, but I have finally uploaded some images from our visits to America here on the site. Here’s a selection, featuring images from Maryland, Indiana and West Virginia. I’ve included some textured and vintage-styled shots of architecture, nature, trains, and of course doors. These are also available for purchase as fine art prints. Enjoy!

Lower Church In Kayakoy

Kayakoy Lower Church, originally uploaded by Josh and Julie.

Kayakoy, in the Mediterranean hills of southwest Turkey, was populated until the first part of the 20th century, when changing world events saw all Greeks depart for the western side of the Aegean Sea. Greek settlements like Kayakoy became ghost towns, their religious buildings empty monuments. The Lower Church shown here was built in the 17th century; frescoes of saints and carved crosses preside over crumbling plaster and a congregation long gone.

Ottoman Architecture, Reflected In A Door

Old Turkish Door Reflecting Ottoman House

This is up the hill in the old part of Ankara. One of those old doors you just pass all the time and finally decide it has some potential. I think people on the street think I’m strange when they see me taking pictures of things like this, but when it comes down to it I decided they’re probably right, and now it doesn’t bother me that much anymore.
