Kiev Funicular

The Kiev Funicular serves the city of Kiev. It connects the historic Uppertown, and the lower commercial neighborhood of Podil through the steep Volodymyrska Hill. Last year, I visited the city and took these photographs.

What is interesting for me was high number of women workers as operators.

Iron Door Decorations

Iron door decorations. They’re always interesting for me. Especially in old Gaziantep, I have seen quite different shapes. Recently, I talked with an old iron craftsman, he said that “when I was a young apprentice, each smithery had its own figure but after machines got into the job, everyone started to produce similar things”.

Changing Coffee Culture in Gaziantep

#Coffee #culture changed in different ways after #Syrian #asylum#seekers came to the Turkey. Small grocery stores started to prepare and sell coffee in front of the their shops. And new coffee brands, which target Syrian customers, produced in Gaziantep, started to appear on the shelves. ———— Suriyeli mülteciler Türkiye’ye gelirken kahve kültürlerini de getirdiler. Gaziantep’te birçok yerde görebileceğiniz bu dükkanlarda ayaküstü farklı bir kahve tadabilirsiniz. #gaziantep#turkey #kahve #everydaymiddleeast#barista #baristadaily #everydayturkey#magnumphotos #everydayphotography#صورة_اليوم #قهوه #قهوة #سوريا

 

God in the Cinema

Here is a list of movies on theme of God. I have extracted those movies from the program Yer Gösterici (in Turkish). The link of the program is at the last of the list. A nice program to watch.

In that list, my personal favourite is Seventh Seal by Ingmar Bergman. Although it is not directly related with theme of God, Winter Light by Ingmar Bergman is also a stunning movie that its story takes place among themes of war, church community, a priest and deadlock love story.
