Return to Ankara

After living here in Ankara, Turkey, for four years and then moving to Okinawa for three, I've returned to Ankara, a city that I enjoy in a country that I love. I had taken many film shots all over Turkey when I was here before http://community.webshots.com/user/helenpb_/1 and am looking forward to doing the country (or at least part of it) in digital this time. Hopefully this gallery will grow and improve once I get settled here and can revisit my old haunts. All images taken either with Sony V1, F717, F828 or H1, Nikon D70 or Nikon D200. For more images of old Ankara, go to http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/ankaras_old_city
