🇹🇷🇬🇧 Altınoluk, Turkey 🇹🇷 Elma Yanaklı
Seneler önce yine bir 23 Nisan günü, bayram kıyafetiyle Altınoluklu Güliz.

Herhalde şimdi güzel mi güzel bir genç kız olmuştur. Gülümsemesi yüzünden hiç eksik olmasın. :-) ... 🇬🇧 Güliz from Altınoluk in western Turkey, dressed for the National Children Day. I hope her smile will never fade away.

🇬🇧🇬🇷 Reflections on Gialos, Greece

Part of the Dodecanese island chain, located about 41 km north-northwest of Rhodes, Simi is an island on the Aegean Sea. Its nearest land neighbors are the Datça peninsula of Muğla Province in Turkey.

The shipbuilding and sponge industries were substantial on the island and, while at their peak near the end of the 19th century, the population reached 22,500. Simi's main industry is now tourism and the population has declined to 2,500.

It is so close (only 7km) to the Turkish coast that, while we were at the harbor, most of the yachts we saw were carrying visitors from neighboring Turkey.

Reflections on the Gialos Harbor show one of the neo-classical buildings built after the 1880 earthquake. They constitute an aesthetic uniform style with triangular front, colourful shades, and lovely balconies.

🇬🇧🇬🇷 Under the Sun *100th post @ Instagram.* Oia, Santorini Island, Greece.

Santorini is a volcanic island in the Aegean Sea and one of the many candiates for the legendary Atlantis City.
The Greek name of the island is Thira, whereas Santorini was given during the Latin Empire in the 13th century, to the honor of St Irene.
The current archipelago is formed during an eruption when the centre collapsed and a rectangular pool, called "caldera", emerged among the islands.

I took the shot at the northwestern point of the island, in Oia where visitors gather to watch the sunset.

🇬🇧🇬🇷 Patmos Island, Greece.

Doors of Patmos

After the death of John of Patmos, possibly around 100 AD, a number of Early Christian basilicas were erected on Patmos. Among these was a Grand Royal Basilica in honour of Saint John, at the location where the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian stands today.

Early Christian life on Patmos, however, barely survived Arab Muslim raids from the 6th to the 9th century. During this period, the Grand Basilica was destroyed. The island was uninhabited from the 6th century A.D. until 1088, when Osios Chistodoulos arrived to establish the Monastery of St. John the Theologian.
In the 11th century, the Byzantine Emperor Alexios I Komnenos gave Reverend Father Christodoulos the complete authority over the island of Patmos, as well as the permission to build a monastery on the island. The construction of the monastery started in 1101.

Population was expanded by infusions of Byzantine immigrants fleeing the Fall of Constantinople in 1453, and Cretan immigrants fleeing the fall of Candia in 1669.

The island was controlled by the Ottoman Empire for many years, but it enjoyed certain privileges, mostly related to tax-free trade by the monastery as certified by Ottoman imperial documents held in the Library.

In 1912, in connection with the Turco-Italian War, the Italians occupied all the islands of the Dodecanese, including Patmos. The Italians remained there until 1943, when Nazi Germany took over the island.

In 1945, the Germans left and the island of Patmos remained autonomous until 1948, when it, together with the rest of the Dodecanese Islands, joined the independent Greece.

🇹🇷🇬🇧🇬🇷 Patmos, Yunanistan. 🇹🇷 Son Yargılama

Fotoğrafta Yunanistan’daki Patmos Adası'nda kilise önünde gördüğünüz kişi, Istanbul'dan geldiğimizi öğrenince bize büyük konukseverlik gösteren, yakın geçmişte dört yıl Fener Rum Patrikhanesi'nde çalışmış olan Papaz Martinianos.

Arkadaki duvar fresklerinde ise, Ortodoks ikonografisinde çok sık görülen “Son Yargılama” tasviri resmedilmiş -Bizdeki sırat köprüsü karşılığı, diğer dünyada insanların günah ve sevaplarının ölçüldüğü an.

Bu fresk özellikle ayinden çıkan Hıristiyanların görebileceği şekilde kilisenin çıkışına, batı duvarına yapılırmış.

Herhalde günlük hayatta nasıl davrandıklarına dikkat etmeleri için ! 🇬🇧 Patmos Island, Greece.
Last judgment

The island was uninhabited from the 6th century A.D. until 1088, when Osios Chistodoulos arrived to establish the Monastery of St. John the Theologian.
The theme of the Last Judgment you see behind Father Martinianos is very important in Orthodoxy. Traditionally, an Orthodox church has a fresco or mosaic of the Last Judgment on the back wall, so that the faithful, as they leave the services, are reminded that they will be judged by what they do in this earthly life.
My gratitude to Father Martinianos for his modeling and hospitality.

🇹🇷🇬🇧🇬🇷 Santorini, Yunanistan
Bodrum ve Yunanistan anakarası arasında bir çizgi çekin. Tam ortada yer alır 73km karelik, 15.000 nüfuslu Thira/Santorini.
Çember şeklinde bir takımada görünümündeki Santorini'nin günümüzden yüzbinlerce yıl önce yanardağ patlaması ile ortası çökmüş, suyla dolmuş. ("Caldera") Fenikeliler, Dorlar, Roma ve Bizans derken Haçlıların eline geçmiş. M.S. 13. yy.'da Latinler Azize İren adına buraya Santorini (nam-ı diğer Aya İrini) adını vermişler. 16. yy'da Osmanlılar’ın egemenliğine giren ada, 1912’'de Yunanistan’'a bağlanmış.

Fotoğrafı antik kalıntılara sahip Akrotiri şehri yamaçlarında çektim. Adalar arası ulaşımı sağlayan feribot limanı yeni terketmişti. 🇬🇧 On the hills of Santorini

🇹🇷🇬🇧🇧🇼 Birds of Botswana - III

Bir gün gecikmeyle de olsa, favori dermatoloğum Zeynep Hanım'a nice yıllara!

Malakit Yalıçapkını / Malachite Kingfisher / Alcedo Cristata, Okavango National Park - Botswana

İbiği bakırtaşının yeşiline ('malakit') benzeyen bu fıstık 13sm boyunda, rengârenk, minik bir nehir kuşu. Parlak mavi sırtı ve uzun gagası ile ayırd edilen, Afrika güneyinde sulak yerlerde rastlanan bu tür, sazlarda tutunup balık, kurbağa ve böcek yakalamak için aniden suya dalar. 🇬🇧 The Malachite Kingfisher is a river kingfisher which is widely distributed in Africa south of the Sahara. This is a small kingfisher, 13 cm in length. The general colour of the upper parts of the adult bird is bright metallic blue.
This is a common species of reeds and rank vegetation near slow moving water or ponds. It sits upright, its tail pointed downwards. It drops suddenly with a splash and usually returns at once with a struggling captive.

🇹🇷🇬🇧🇰🇭 Angkor Thom, Cambodia. 🇹🇷 Tanrılara sırtını dayamak

Kamboçya’nın tapınak şehirler vahası Siem Reap büyüleyici bir yer. Angkor Thom da bitişik birçok şehircikten biri.

XII. yy'da Kimer imparatoru Jayavarman VII tarafından inşa edilen bu şehir dokuz km kare büyüklüğünde.

Şehrin ortasında, sütunlarının çoğu dört yandan devasa Buda kabartmaları ile süslü devlet tapınağı Bayon yer alıyor. Bu kocaman Buda kabartmalarından 200 kadar var ve tapınağın her köşesinde karşınıza çıkıyorlar. 🇬🇧 Leaned to the history

Built in the XIIth century by Jayavarman VII, Angkor Thom was the last and most enduring capital city of the Khmer Empire. It is one of the city temples located near the touristic Siem Reap, in Cambodia.

Constructed in the late 12th century or early 13th century as the official state temple, the Bayon stands at the centre of Jayavarman's capital, Angkor Thom. Following Jayavarman's death, it was modified and augmented by later Hindu and Theravada Buddhist kings in accordance with their own religious preferences.

In the picture, you see a young Cambodian in front of one of the big Buddha faces of Bayon.
