Photographer's Note

Spring is my favorite season.

After long and cold winter days a new life takes start and life goes on but not within the walls but mainly outside of our homes.
This one is such a scene, taken in Sile, only 75 km's North of İstanbul on the Black Sea shores.

Let' greet the spring with a poem of Robert Frost.




A Prayer In Spring

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers today
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil.
