Narrow Street In Beypazari

This street in the central Anatolian town of Beypazari isn’t really collapsing in on itself, it just looks that way thanks to a wide-angle lens and the natural close design of a traditional Ottoman street. The restored wooden houses of Beypazari are a great example of 18th and 19th century Ottoman architecture, the cars sitting in the streets herald the coming of the 21st, and the carpets hanging out to dry never change, whatever the century may be.

Canon EOS Rebel XTi, ISO-100, f/9, 1/30 sec.
