Side - Antique

Thank you so much for your proposal CsomorLászló !

Side is a resort on the Turkish Riviera. The city lies between the cities of Antalya and Alanya, Manavgat district,
belonging to the Turkish province of Antalya. Side has a long history of about 3500 years.
In ancient times it was a major port city in Pamphylia region, as this place on the central coast has been called in ancient times.
Away from the tourist area there are many ancient treasures, which are sadly neglected by the local government.
That even gives a certain charm to this picture though.

Side ist ein Urlaubsort an der Türkischen Riviera. Die Stadt liegt zwischen den Städten Antalya und Alanya im Landkreis Manavgat, der zu der türkischen Provinz Antalya gehört. Side blickt auf eine etwa 3500 Jahre lange Vergangenheit zurück und war in der Antike eine bedeutende Hafenstadt in der Region Pamphylien, wie diese Landschaft an der mittleren Südküste in der Antike genannt wurde.
Abseits der touristischen Region findet man viele antike Schätze, die leider von der örtlichen Regierung ziemlich vernachlässigt werden.
Wobei gerade bei diesem Bild das sogar einen gewissen Charme ausmacht.

    nice documentation.
    What is the "key" of this picture? One part of the ruine or the ruine itself? The light? the contrasts? The door i nthe center?

    For sure it's a pity when ancient remains go unattended and thus wilderness conquers them, but as the author well states, it is exactly this what gives the site its charm.
    Love the way the doorways frame the Nature behind them.
    A pro for me.
    Best regards,
