Doors of Urgup, Turkey in the Cappadocia Region

When I visited the Cappadocia region of Turkey in 2009 I was traveling light as usual and my Blackberry Tour was my camera for the entire trip. Cappadocia and the Goreme National Park which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site are intriguing places to see both for the geological formations and the historical features. Touring the ancient underground cities and staying in a cave hotel are a unique experience.

Staying in the town of Urgup I walked the neighborhood in the mornings and viewed a gallery of beautiful doors.

    Thank you all for visiting! I think doors have such great character, they make a wonderful subjects for photography. The ones with a lot of texture grab my attention.

    I think the key to taking photos with a not so great camera is the lighting, and proximity of the subject. Landscape photos don’t turn out so well with my camera phone. I still have that blackberry phone but I’m ready to upgrade to a fancier model with a spiffier camera!
