Now compare it to cities with neighborless neighborhoods, Emre. Oh, such is the tranquility in the street that time must have a differnt logic there...

Bahadir, Mandy,

I'm very glad that you both filtered the soul and beauty of the lives lived there once. To be able to reflect that by a photograph, is I think more important than taking a technically perfect photo with no story behind.

Thanks for your appreciation and awareness.

emre.

I'd be delighted to see a few more from Ayvalık, ah, full of stoy and history : ) Now, surely, it is the passion which precedes and technique that will follow...Yet, if we take the matter in terms of duality as such, things will often end up in a vicious circle like that of the 'signifier' and 'signified'...

eu,

Indeed beautiful houses, with artistic ambitions and obvious qualities. Had a friend who went to Architect University.

They all seemed to like old idyllic houses, the older, the better

Colours are wonderful

It's always sad to see such buildings. One thinks of the craftsmen and builders who took pride in their work, and the people who lived out their lives in them.

Torgny,

That's true that the architects are tend to like old yet beautiful buildings. Those buildings are generally are not the products of mass production and the clues of the craftsmanship are readable on, which makes every building a unique piece.

Barbarian,
That's a true approach to the buildings in means of pride. Also there was much more social life between the neighbors then.

On the other hand these buildings were not only good for people but for pets as well. Oh, pets are still happy being there though they seem more timid now.

emre.
