Ankara's Old City

I've gotten a bit carried away taking pictures of the old part of Ankara, which encompasses some of the city's oldest and most traditional neighborhoods as well as the ruins of its earlier days, so I've decided to put them all in a separate gallery. I have had to concentrate mainly on buildings since the people up there don't much like to have their picture taken, but I hope to get more creative at taking people pictures as time goes by. All images shot with a Sony F717 or V1 or a Nikon D70. For images of the newer Ankara, as well as some from this area, go to http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/return_to_ankara
