Photographer's Note

This is a kind of photo I rarely show, just a rural scenery and nothing else. No farmer standing in the foreground, no cows or horses.

But I found this photo when I was looking through my archive from the Middle East in 1970. I thought it looked okay, so I scanned it, and here it is, nice and grainy. ;-)

This was taken from a train somewhere in eastern Anatolia, Turkey's vast interior. Reading my diary and estimating the time, I decided we must have been in the province of Erzincan.

My friend and I were making a long and tiresome journey from Kayseri in central Turkey, where we had stopped to see Cappadocia, to Erzurum in the east where we were to look for a bus to Iran.

The train had probably stopped here for seemingly no reason at all. My memory tells me how we wasted hours at small stations in the middle of nowhere. It was a very slow journey.

This was scanned from an Agfacolor CT18 slide.
