Ephesus is the best preserved classical city of Eastern Mediterranean, ans among the best places in the world enabling to genuinely soak in the atmosphere of Roman times
Ephesus (Efes) is situated on the west coast of Anatolia, near present-day Selçuk, Izmir Province, Turkey.
The city was famed for the Temple of Artemis, one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World. It is nowadays almost entirely ruined: only one inconspicuous column and fragments of the frieze remains.
It’s better to begin the visit by the top of the site (south entrance) and to walk along the main street.
During the summer, the visit is exhausting, because there’s no shade and it’s very hot (don’t forget to take water and a cap).
The site is very famous and overcrowded, too, but it is worth the visit.
The most impressive monument is the one called the Library of Celsus, whose façade has been carefully reconstructed from all the original pieces.
It was built by Gaius Julius Aquila in Memory of his father and once held nearly 12,000 scrolls.
This article is dedicated to the Hungarian-American photographer Cornell Capa, brother of the famous Magnum reporter Robert, and to his great humanitarian and social contributions in educating and changing the world. Capa's photos depict genuine human feelings, hope, and solidarity, and avoid commercial cynicism or disinterested formalism. I write this tribute facing a delicate argument: mental disability.
Kamila K Stanley is always on the cusp of an adventure. In the early part of 2015, she started inviting fellow photographers to join a collective named after a verse from "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds." And ever the curious observer, she spent some part of the year in Turkey. With a camera and reserve of 35mm films, of course.

For some, it marked their first foray into the wonderful world of analog photography. Others consider it a trusty, go-to camera despite having a massive camera collection which sometimes include some of the best gear there is. Whatever the case may be, toy cameras will always hold a special place in the hearts (and shelves) of analog photographers everywhere, quirks and all.
Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
Talking about the creation of the world. A big bang, meteors hitting planets, ice age and tectonic breakdancing. The world is an incredible start up and the landscapes, that were created through the elements and time. Sometimes your eyes can still see this amazing process in a timelapse. Such a mystical place is Lake Toba in North Sumatra. Or as the locals call it: Danau Toba.

A photograph is a sponge of change. It resists to be one thing for all time. When it soaks up some sun and sip in a little moisture, it is already in a state of chemical imbalance. It welcomes decay, and a new beauty sets in.
