Turkey - colour and character.

This summer i was lucky enough to spend two glorious weeks in Turkey. We were based in the small town of Kalkan which is on the Turkish Mediterranean coast. It is a lovely part of the world where the sea is a transluscent light blue. That is why the region is known as the Turquoise Coast.

I will give more details of my trip in a later post but today i just wanted to try and convey the brilliant colours that i experienced at the local market.
Ceramic pots of all sizes and colours.

A fantastic array of fabrics to titilate the senses.

Various fruits to tempt the taste buds.
Shoulder bags, summer dresses and carpets.

Wow! How did I miss this post? I adore Turkey but you really have managed to captures the colours and vibrancy. I hope you do still post about your adventures. It is five years since I went to Turkey and the first thing I ever blogged about at Emm in London!
