Trabzon, Erzurum, Ani, and the Georgian Church Trail- Holga Shots


In May of this year, I returned once again to Turkey- it seems that I can't escape its magnetic pull- for a wedding, a jaunt through the fairy-chimney laden territory of Cappadocia during the Cappadox Festival, and a Black Sea road trip. I had my Holga camera in town throughout and was able to capture some of Erzurum's Seljuk architecture, the ruins of Ani near Kars, as well as ancient Georgian churches between Kars and Barhal, all with its ghostly pinhole images.
