Last weekend we went to Patara wıth some frıends to see the results of the latest work and the restored Lycian Assembly building alone is worth the visit. Afterwards we popped into Kalkan for lunch and found it mostly closed up for the winter apart from some very expensive restaurants down on the quayside. Then, further up, we found Hünkar Ocakbaşı and can recommend it for it’s hearty, delicious and inexpensive regional specialities. Ocakbaşı means fireside or chimney corner and that’s basically where you sit in this cozy little place. Anyway, the ambiance got me thinking of Christmas so I’ve started a series of Xmas tree pictures with the vague idea of using one or two as artwork for xmas cards. I’m finding them perfect subjects to continue exploring this style.
