🇬🇧🇮🇪 Under the Columns.

St. Peter's Basilica is a Late Renaissance church located within the Vatican City. St. Peter's Basilica has the largest interior of any Christian church in the world. It is regarded as one of the holiest Catholic sites.
In Catholic tradition, the basilica is the burial site of its namesake Saint Peter, who was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus and, according to tradition, first Bishop of Rome and therefore first in the line of the papal succession.
Tradition and some historical evidence hold that Saint Peter's tomb is directly below the altar of the basilica. For this reason, many Popes have been interred at St Peter's since the Early Christian period. There has been a church on this site since the 4th century. Construction of the present basilica, over the old Constantinian basilica, took more than a century: It began in 1506 and was completed in 1626.

St. Peter's is famous as a place of pilgrimage, and is associated with the papacy, with the Counter-reformation and with numerous artists, most significantly Michelangelo. Contrary to popular misconception, Saint Peter's is not a cathedral, as it is not the seat of a bishop. It is properly termed a papal basilica. The Basilica of St. John Lateran is the cathedral church of Rome.

To the east of the basilica is the Piazza di San Pietro (St. Peter's Square), where I took this shot. The present arrangement, constructed between 1656 and 1667, is the Baroque inspiration of Bernini who inherited a location already occupied by an Egyptian obelisk of the 13th century BC, which was centrally placed. The obelisk, known as "The Witness", at 25.5 metres and a total height, including base and the cross on top, of 40 metres, is the second largest standing obelisk, and the only one to remain standing since its removal from Egypt and re-erection at the Circus of Nero in 37 AD, where it is thought to have stood witness to the crucifixion of St Peter.

🇬🇧🇮🇪 Coliseum seen from the eyes of a fish.

Rome, Italy.

The Colosseum, or the Coliseum, is an elliptical amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome.

Its construction started 70 AD under the emperor Vespasian and was completed in 80 AD under Titus, with further modifications being made during Domitian's reign (81–96). Capable of seating 50,000 spectators, the Colosseum was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Classical mythology.
The building ceased to be used for entertainment in the early medieval era. It was later reused for such purposes as housing, workshops, quarters for a religious order, a fortress, a quarry, and a Christian shrine.

🇬🇧🇮🇪 Canals of Murano, Italy

Murano located about just 1.5km to Venice, is composed of islets connected with bridges. The city is known for its glassware bearing the same name. The glass making industry was established in Murano in 1291 after the Venetians decided to take all glass furnaces out of Venice due to their fire risk.
By the 14th century, glassmakers were allowed to wear swords, enjoyed immunity from prosecution by the Venetian state, and found their daughters married into Venice’s most affluent families. While benefiting from certain statutory privileges, glassmakers were forbidden to leave the Republic. However, many of them took the risks associated with migration and established glass furnaces in surrounding cities and farther afield - sometimes in England and the Netherlands.

Murano’s glassmakers held a monopoly on high-quality glassmaking for centuries, developing or refining many technologies including crystalline glass, enameled glass (smalto), glass with threads of gold (aventurine), multicolored glass (millefiori), milk glass (lattimo), and imitation gemstones made of glass.
Today, the artisans of Murano still employ these centuries-old techniques, crafting everything from contemporary art glass and glass jewelry to Murano glass chandeliers and wine stoppers.

🇬🇧🇮🇪 La Vita ė Bella, Arezzo, Tuscany, Italy.

Located in Tuscany, 80km southeast of Florence, Arezzo used to be one of the 12 most important Etruscan cities.
The commune of Arezzo threw off the control of its bishop in 1098 and was an independent city-state until 1384, when it yielded to Florentine domination. Afterwards the city began an economical and cultural decay, which fortunately ensured that its medieval centre was preserved.

If you walk thru the narrow streets to the top of the hill, you’ll find the Arezzo Duomo, a cathedral built in gothic style, with beautiful stain glasses dating back to the XVI. century.

A final note: Arezzo is the city where Roberto Benigni’s movie Life is beautiful/La vita è bella was filmed.

🇬🇧🇮🇪 Venice, Italy.

Near the Rialto Bridge at night.

The name of Venice is derived from the ancient people of Veneti that inhabited the region as of 10th century B.C.
The city historically was the capital of the Venetian Republic. Venice has been known as the "La Dominante", "Serenissima", "Queen of the Adriatic", "City of Water", "City of Masks", "City of Bridges", "The Floating City", and "City of Canals". Gondola is one of the foremost symbols of Venice. It is a traditional, flat-bottomed local rowing boat, suited to the conditions of the Venetian Lagoon. For centuries gondolas were the chief means of transportation and most common watercraft within Venice.

It is estimated that there were eight to 10 thousand gondolas during the 17th and 18th century. There are just over four hundred in active service today, virtually all of them used for hire by tourists.
The banana-shaped modern gondola was developed in the 19th century by the boat-builder Tramontin, whose heirs still run the Tramontin boatyard. The construction of the gondola continued to evolve until the mid-20th century, when the city government prohibited any further modifications. A sumptuary law of Venice required that gondolas should be painted black, and they are customarily painted black since then.

The profession of gondolier is controlled by a guild, which issues a limited number of licenses granted after periods of training and apprenticeship, and a major comprehensive exam which tests the knowledge of Venetian history and landmarks, foreign language, and practical skills in handling the gondola, necessary in the tight spaces of Venetian canals.

🇬🇧🇮🇪 Street painter in front of Duomo, Florence, Italy.

The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore is the cathedral church (Duomo) of Florence, Italy, begun in 1296 in the Gothic style to the design of Arnolfo di Cambio and completed structurally in 1436 with the dome engineered by Filippo Brunelleschi.
The exterior of the basilica is faced with polychrome marble panels in various shades of green and pink bordered by white and has an elaborate 19th century Gothic Revival facade by Emilio De Fabris.

The cathedral complex, located in Piazza del Duomo, includes the Baptistery and Giotto's Campanile. The basilica is one of Italy's largest churches, and until the modern era, the dome was the largest in the world. It remains the largest brick dome ever constructed.

🇬🇧🇮🇪 Alba, Cuneo/Italy. After a dry and warm summer, it was harvest time in late September of 2012 for the vineyards in Alba, in the Cuneo province of Italy. Although it was a mostly cloudy, often precipitated week-end, it was a pleasure to see the vineyards of Northern Italy: Almost no empty space was available in the hills around Alba, everybody was cultivating grapes. Leaves were turning red. We still had a few weeks' time until the truffle festival, yet the excitement was all around.

🇹🇷🇬🇧 Annemin evinin balkonundan yeşil papağanlar
Yeşil papağan (The green parakeet / Psittacara holochlorus) Orta Amerika'da Meksika'dan Nikaragua'ya kadarki bölgede yaşayan bir kuş. Göçmen olmayan bu kuş sadece besin kaynakları gerektirdiğinde yer değiştirmiş.

Peki nasıl Ataköy'e gelmişler?

Rivayete göre, havaalanından şehre bir kuş satıcısı veya hayvanat bahçesine nakledilirken vuku bulan bir trafik kazası sonucu özgürlüklerini kazanmış ve Istanbul'un yeşil alanlıklarına yayılmışlar. Naçizane dönem dönem yedi yeşil papağanı Ataköy'de bir arada uçarken sabah veya akşamüstü saatlerinde görmüşlüğüm vardır. ... Green parakeets from the balcony of my mother's apartment.

The green parakeet (Psittacara holochlorus), is a medium-sized parrot that is native to Central America, from Mexico south to northern Nicaragua. These birds have established self-sustaining populations in some cities in South Texas in the United States. It is unclear if the US population are feral released birds or may be some wild vagrants which have moved north from Mexico. The green parakeet is usually nonmigratory, but will move sometimes to take advantage of food supplies.

So how come they live in Ataköy, Istanbul?

The story goes that they were freed during a traffic accident which took place hile they were being transferred from the airport to the city. I often see as many as seven parakeets flying together in Ataköy. They live in some other distant city neighborhoods as well.
