Turkish Life, Circa 1987
by Fran Sibley
About the Book
This is the second book I've done using photos from my 1987 visit to Ankara, Turkey. The first book, Remembering Turkey, is a color record of the trip. With this book, I've concentrated on selected images...primarily the people of Ankara's "old town" as black and white images.
I used software from Ohanaware, called "Funtastic Photos" and the preset is called "Old Black and White." I love the effects it created and paired with a red background, should make a cool book.
I have lived at Lake of the Ozarks since November 2005. The lake area is predominantly rural, which provides the perfect avenue for the nature photography found in my books. More recently, I have done freelance photography for Old Kinderhook Golf Resort and have published two photo books on Old Kinderhook.
