Looking back at photos has always made me feel nostalgic, there is something sentimental in capturing certain moments in life and keeping them in a shelf to come back in the future. Also, there is this fact that photos are not real in terms of capturing the moment as they are the duplications of the moment itself and it is easily manipulated by the person who clicks the shutter.
I can go on and on feeling all poetic, but it's time to get back on the main point and present you the stories behind these so many snapshots. Çeşme has been an amazing period, I loved getting away from Istanbul even for a short time, and the fact that I had my favourite songs and books keeping me company and my dearest friends who constantly spread liveliness and happiness around; I couldn't ask for more. Real friends are pure treasures, I find this little lesson the hard way. I came in terms that the ones who are beside me are the ones who truly matter, the others are not important at all.

Geri dönüp fotoğraflara bakmak beni hep nostaljik bir havaya sokar, belirli anları dondurup ilerde geri dönüp bakmak için saklamakla ilgili tertemiz, duygusal bir his var. Aynı zamanda şöyle bir gerçek de var ki, bu fotoğraflar o anların asla gerçekleri değil, sadece birer kopyaları ve bu kopyalar tamamiyle deklanşöre basan insanın kontrolü altında.
Kendimi bir şair gibi hissederek böyle şeyler yazmaya devam edebilirim elbette ama bu bir sürü fotoğrafın arkasındaki hikayeleri aktarmakla devam edeceğim. Çeşme gerçekten güzel bir zamandı, İstanbul'dan kısa bir süreliğine de olsa uzaklaşmak çok iyi geldi, tabii ki bunda en sevdiğim şarkıların ve kitapların bana eşlik etmesi ve en yakınlarınımın etraflarına neşe ve canlılık saçması da yardımcı oldu; daha fazlasını isteyemezdim. Gerçek dostluklar hazine gibiler, bu küçük dersi biraz acı bir şekilde öğrendim. Yine de, yanımda olmayanların hiç mi hiç önemli olmadığını ve yanımdakilere sahip olduğum için ne kadar şanslı olduğumu öğrendim.


ALL PHOTOS ARE EITHER TAKEN VIA IPHONE OR SAMSUNG NX MINI

    1. Agreed! I also believe that you can chose what to feel when you look at certain things, make it a photo or a completely different thing!

  5. It's fascinating that on those photos it looks like you're having a crazy-fun-girls-time but then you get really sweet and sentimental on the text :) By the way, you and your friend looks so fine with beach hair. And also, that one piece swimsuit you're wearing, i'm having a crush on it right now.

    Cheers!

    1. I think I'm bi-textual, most of the time I'd put on something up and write something totally irrelevant to the material, but it's all the more fun anyway. Still, it was really fun and I'm so happy that you get the taste of it just from the photos. Thanks a lot Aini, for your precious time and your kindest words, you really are amazing :)
