My little trip to Selçuk was actually a fantastic photo opportunity for me. I resolutely left my old familiar camera back home and took my new one with me determined to experiment with as many new settings as I could.
Saturday, a bright, beautiful day, was the big weekly pazar or market in the centre of Selçuk, so off we went. This region of Turkey is remarkably fertile and, being near the Aegean, I knew I would see many ot or green herbs as it’s renowned for them.
All the market produce, while not strictly organic perhaps, was as doğal or natural as you can get – the climate is so mild that everything grows. I would hate to think they’re using fertilizers and pesticides on their lovely vegetables and salads.
As for my photography, it’s all a question of light, I can see that!
