Izmir climb to citadel

After a visit to the agora I climbed towards Kadifekale (Velvet Castle). From there one gets great views over the city (and a nice fortification in the bargain). I was informed the green area in the foreground of this photo was known as Kültürpark and was home to a huge International Fair for the month of September every year.

I have pictures from there elsewhere in this site, and remember visiting the Kültürpark in the early '70's. I think the frequency of fairs has gone up, last time there was a marble fair that seems to be regularly held.

A view from a ridge nearby.

Nikon D70
1/640s f/8.0 at 70.0mm full exif

Izmir was my home from 1969 to 1974. The green area in the foreground of this photo was known as Kültürpark...and was home to a huge International Fair for the month of September every year. Gail.
