Revisiting Heritage sites

I’ve been looking over my notebook this morning and a common theme seems to have taken place.

My love for pen drawing (not taking photographs of) places I’ve been to…

Roman Ruins, Oledeniz

Whilst I was on holiday in Turkey, the lagoon beach on Oledeniz gave me lots of opportunities to capture the surroundings around me.  And whilst i’m not an avid sunbather – I had plenty of time to develop a tan while I was doing it.

The drawings are of the Roman Ruins near to the Lagoon area of Oledeniz.  They have been well preserved and are now offset against the beach clubs and sandy beaches of the hotels in the area.  Old Roman Bricks now settle with Turkish Flowers and Sun Loungers, and it was wonderful to see.

Roman Ruins 2, Oledeniz

In some places the local wildlife used the piles of marble as a cool hiding place from the sun.  Aside from the sun, the area reminded me of Castlefield’s Roman Wall…but without any of the facelift!
