Bergama the ancient Greek Ruins. It is one of the steepest theaters in the world.
On our way to Izmir, we decided to stop by Bergama (Pergamon) to just do some sightseeing and I’m so glad we did! The ruins of the old Greek city that was built on that site was mesmerizing! Our first stop was the Kızıl Avlu (Red Basilica) which actually is located within the center of the town. It was built for a Roman Emperor and today still stands, however, due to security reasons, we could only look around from the outside and could not actually enter into the basilica.
And after the Basilica, we took the hill that led to the Asclepion. My favorite part on the Asclepion was the Library, which contained 200.000 books at some point. Now only a few of the columns still stand but as the sun shines through them, the view is spectacular. And on the left side of Library, leading down a really steep hill is the old Theatre. It is one of the steepest theaters in the world. Since I’m afraid of height, I could only look around a little but did not attempt to go down to the center of the theatre. But still it was worth seeing!!!

The ancient philosopher Plato claimed that the truest form of reality is not the tangible, but the abstract. While many intellectuals come and go to debate such belief, we still wonder to what extent of accuracy Plato reached. Photographer Sarolta Gyoker enters the world of forms.
A slight contrast to what is usually on display in The Rubin Museum of Art in Chelsea, Henri Cartier-Bresson's work has taken place for some time in the scared home of many ancient Himalayan artworks and pieces of the surrounding areas, including India.
One of our peeves during Mondays is the motion and noise that explode right in front of our faces once we head out from our homes. We're meant to conquer the world. Don't fight, either give in or urn those negative elements into artistic photographs with this Monday Moodboard.
You might wonder why the world has gone green for today. Every 17th of March, one would find people wearing shamrocks, attending cèilidhean, marching parades, drinking the best Irish beer and whiskey in the area. No doubt, today is Saint Patrick's Day.
Colors mean differently for all walks of life. The color Cobalt is one of the oldest blues recorded in history. Lomography tries to understand the meaning of each complex color found in the gradient and what it means for most of us photographers.
They say art destroys lives, just the way Vincent Van Gogh met his demise. It's a stereotype that creativity happens at the expense of our sanity. It is the other way around. Art saves lives, and photography has saved much more in the modern world.
