I wish to further understand the mysteries in this universe through music, art, literature, scientific discovery, observations about the physical world, empathetic experiences of the emotional world, and especially through the human touch of humor and love.

Renovation Or Destruction? by ballad



This picture I took last year in Hasankeyf. The town was part of some of the oldest civilizations, and Sumerians, Akkadians, Babylonians and Persians ruled over the city before it became the buffer zone of the conflicts between the Romans and Sassanians. Then it came under Byzantine rule and later saw the emergence of the great Islamic empires. And sadly, this long history of Hasankeyf is about to come to a close soon, due to the construction of a dam. You can find more information about Hasankeyf here: http://j.mp/1EWfqID The picture was originally posted here: http://j.mp/1vKn34U via 500px http://j.mp/1EWftnG
