analog diary: Santorini with sunset...














































Megalochori becomes my favroite village in Santorini. You can hear birds singing, you can
feel the sun is shining above you, and have a big happiness that you never want to let it go.
Here, everything stops, and only church clocks are working like in an unreal context. Time gets
slow, you get calm and every detail surrounding you is so "beautiful".

Also when in Santorini, I decided that I'd seen the most beautiful sunset ever in my life till the next
time I'll see a better one...

analog diary: Santorini with peaceful minds...











At last I took my film rolls back that I can travel in time with these analog images!

I miss summer so badly! Then I turned back and looked at my pics taken when in Santorini.

new year's started with a trip...

road trip on 31 December 2015

a small town with a red car

a snowy view by balcony
baked homemade bread

orange cake by a friend
For the new year's eve, we went out of town where Türker's brother lives in. We welcomed 2015
with food, cava and some drinking games.

Nowadays, Istanbul is snowy, and I remember that how much I like snow (but of course not as 
much as love for sun). The best activity is to bake bread, cake and having fun at home while watching
snowing by window.

Here is my new 2015 list; not many things as the last year's but just some important goals for my 
mind :)
- learn to be more patient
- create spare times for my mind and body
- don't think so much about the same subjects over and over
- work with more self discipline
- see more places and cities in my country
- save money for USA road trip
- eat more vegetables and fruits
- break prejudices and try to listen to people
- do more yoga 
- camp in a tent near the nature

And these are the last year's resolutions that I had a chance to success some of them. You can see 
also which ones I didn't complete for the last year. (+, -)

* Try to do more yoga -
* Try to sleep regulary, eat healthy food +
* Go to more natural places, near seaside, forest or a mountain -
* Listen to new kinds of music +
* Develop ideas for the new issues of my magazine; match-up +

* Create stories for Papier Atelier's exhibiton theme -
* Visit more galleries -
* Take more portrait pictures -
* Meet more people, talk to strangers +
* Travel again to some places I've missed such as; Berlin & Paris +
* Been to new lands I've never gone (not decided yet which is gonna be) +
* Organize a wedding ceremony for beloved family members and some friends +
* Try new sex positions +
* Drink new cocktails and try homemade cocktail recipes +
* Read more books, mags, and zines +
* Create a small vintage collection and sell them on my blog -
* Attend more gatherings +
* Dance out every weekend (or at least once in 2 weeks) -
* Learn how to do massage -
* Decorate our bedroom and studio +
* Search about colors and color harmonies with together +
* Practice Italian to not forget how to speak -


Happy new year again, and welcome 2015!

Here is a short summary of my 2014 with some pics. Of course there are lots of moments I want to
mention but these are the ones I remember in a clear way. This year wasn't my favorite one that I had
lots of things to do, worked hard for my magazine, and tried to be calm and peaceful to concentrate
on my works.... but my wedding day and our honeymoon were the bests of my life so far.

I hope all we'll have a better and awesome year with a big wisdom, peace, and happiness!

Happy new year, happy 2015! See you.
