Hi all.
Just for a change, a bit of architecture. ( Almost time for a portrait too I think ) But this is one of many in the area of Kalkan. At certain times of day you can hear the chant from the Mosque via the loud speakers that they all seem to have, near the top of the building. From what we were told, the chant is saying,
" All Muslim Men, come to this place now."
It's great to hear though, it really makes you feel like you're far from home, and in a totaly strange culture to our own.
Well, I did say that I would bring you all sides of Kalkan, I hope you enjoy this one.

All the best to all, and thanks as always for dropping by.

Good composition, in tones and lines, and beautiful evening light of the sort that follows a hot sunny day. As though we'd know about that in England...

I love the cool light on the building. Its severe lines do remind me a little of the helmets worn by Star Troopers, though - and if that isn't naughty I don't know what is Wink

With the followers of this religions prayer time being called about - 6 times a day - I wonder how they get any work done!! With you being on holiday John I can understand why this shot was taken at dusk and not following the early morning call!! Enjoyed the setting sun over this mosque with the warm tones in the sky against the blueness of the building which makes for a kind of spooky feeling.

Dave.
