Just One Person from around the World: Turkey

One period of our travelling life that will always stand out as the most memorable was our repeated months in Turkey. Especially our road trips away from the more touristy spots. However, most of our time was centred around Dalyan.Β Dalyan is a town in Muğla Province located between Marmaris and Fethiye’s well-known districts on the southwest coast of Turkey.

It was such a contrast to what we had explored elsewhere. Until, we got to Greece.

Heading to town with two of your cows as you do on Market days.

Lazy Hazy Days of a Turkish Summer

I loved how generous the Turkish people were and humbled at how very little they had to give. This local farmer had the biggest toothless grin I have sighted for quite a while and took his role of walking the cows seriously knowing I wanted a photo him. Thank you.

  1. I love the color of this photo. Seeing it though, I can’t help thinking “Poor cows.” If they’re on the way to the market then it’s probably a one way trip!

    Maybe they’re being sold for dairy. I prefer to think so πŸ™‚

    1. In the country areas where we used to walk the dogs in our care and feed the strays people lived simply and it was like going back to a labour intensive way of life. In some ways it sort of appealed. In the last couple of years politicians are once again a major concern, as their leader wants to go back to the old days of ruling their country. Scary!


    2. The river and township are very touristy. We didn’t spend much time in town. Though loved the local markets for fruit and vegetables. So cheap and excellent quality produce.


  2. Thanks for posting this. I hadn’t come across this idea for a challenge but I love it! I often look back at photos I’ve taken of people and wonder about them. Here I am with an image that captures just one instant of their lives but I know nothing about those lives – who they are, what they do with themselves, what happened next after I took the photo. Because I do street photography in many cases they don’t even know that there is an image of them out there in the world! I’m going to have a think about what I could contribute!

    1. It is a fun challenge and I look forward to seeing what you post. Street photography and especially people aren’t a big attraction for me just every now and again a situation grabs my attention.

  3. I have spent way too little time in Turkey and it is high up on my list to return when we can all travel again. I remember being in a market out in a small town with hundreds of people milling about when all of a sudden I hear “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie”! Of course I turned around and very classily said “Oi, Oi. Oi” and it was a man who had lived for a long time in Melbourne. He was so happy to talk to an Aussie again! A nice memory for me.
