This is a clever shot, Art, through a window, looking through the past into the current time.
We have been there many times over the years, as my wife is Turkish and we have a summer home outside of Izmir. But where exactly were you standing for this shot? Is this a view of the Agora?   Posted: 05/06/2020 14:04:36

I like this way oc composing a frame within a frame. It is all in focus, good, good expositions, and natural colors. Very well done Art.   Posted: 05/19/2020 09:37:12

Thanks for the memory---almost.


When I first saw the thumbnail for this image I did a double take. I thought I was looking at the Lion Gate from Mycennae. Decades ago I work with a team that did some digging at that site and your photo brought back such find memories. I took a shot of the Lion Gate in exactly the format as your image.

Looking at your image and the work going on really made me wonder what what happening at Ephesus now. My mental image of the ruins and what might be unearthed was quite powerful.

A good photo should have the ability to connect to those who view it and this one certainly does. You make me feel 30 years younger any with my trowel and brush in in hands. Thanks   Posted: 05/20/2020 10:14:06
