Have we ever met anyone who has walked through the streets of Kaş and not found them to be completely enchanting? Probably not. While the higher rise apartments climbing further and further up the surrounding hillsides might be a bit of a challenge to the visual senses for some, the town’s old alleyways around the harbour more than make up for that.
Travel Photo – Just Kaş
April 18, 2013 8 Comments
After visiting the Antiphellos Theatre last week, we strolled around these streets, taking photos. Strangely, despite numerous previous visits here, our Kaş photo archives are low in numbers. I think when we’ve spent time here in the past, it must have been pre-digital camera days. Post-digital camera days have been flying visits to Kaş to go to the Greek island of Meis so we’ve never really had chance to wander aimlessly.
The photo above is the classic Kaş scene. Anyone who’s been here will probably have a similar photo in their repertoire – well, why wouldn’t the photographer be stopped in their tracks here? We’re in classic photo fodder territory here. To the left of the shot is the ancient Lycian sarcophagus, the King’s Tomb which the local carpet shop opposite uses as a prop to display their wares. Again, this attracts many a camera-wielding tourist as the scene seems to pop up in any guidebook about Turkey.
We’ve got more posts on Kaş coming up over the next few weeks – on this trip, we made sure the camera was kept very busy!
