Photographer's Note

I have recently read "The Bridge over the Drina" by Ivo Andric. In this book, the author uses the bridge of Visegrad, commissioned by the Grand Vizier Sokollu Mehmed Pasha (Mehmed Paša Sokolović), to describe the lives of Catholics, Orthodox and the Muslims of the Balkans from the 1500s to early 1900s. The bridge had a portion "in the middle where it widened out into two completely equal terraces placed symmetrically on either side of the roadway and making it twice its normal width. This was the part of the bridge known as the kapia." [p. 14] (Kapia is from Turkish meaning "door" or "gate.") I imagine the structures in the middle of Ekmekçizade Ahmet Paşa Bridge could also be called its kapia. So today, I am going to present photos from this imagined gate. The main entry is looking at the River Tunca (Tundzha) through the "window" of the eastern part of the kapia.
