Five years ago, I went to Adana with a special invitation for the "Orange Blossom Carnival" and made my AERIAL ADANA photography series by flying in my paramotor. I was asked again this year to video capture Adana from the air with my paramotor for the carnival which was held online. We started off by making plans with my friend sculptor Kemal Tufan. My aim was to include Kemal in the shoots while flying. The weather was suitable for flying for just three or four days of the week that we reserved for the project. We devoted our first flight day to the most beautiful part of Adana. After a nice flight and video shoot, it was really surprising that many security people met us in the park where we landed. They have wondered about us. We did not have any problems. However, the proximity of Adana and the surrounding regions to the Southeast clearly showed us the sensitivity in such matters. Realizing that we would not be able to shoot as we wanted in the next two days, we ate our kebab, visited the orange groves and returned to Istanbul.
Here is a short video that I prepared from our single flight:

Let Your Gift Be Different and Special on Valentine's Day…
Dear Art Lovers,
I hope you all spent the first days of the new year in good health.
This extraordinary period is one in which we all turned a little more inward, questioned ourselves and reminded us how precious our loved ones are.
Another February 14th is coming. For me, Valentine's Day is not just "lovers" day, it is a special day to remember everyone dear to my life.
For this reason, I have prepared a special Valentine's Day selection, so that you can give your beloved and loved ones a special gift that they will always remember you with.
You can see this selection at alikabasartist.com/valentines and order high gloss, archival metal prints or unframed fine art prints at 20% off until February 15, 2021. Just use the coupon code VALENTINES at checkout. You can also find my other photographs under the Galleries menu as always.
This year let your gift be different, lasting, and art…

This is the final episode of my summer of 2020 southern trip. The long trip concluded in Bodrum where it first started. I ended up adding two more images to my Water's Edge photography series. Golden Rock and Balancing Act.

Would you like your gift to be special this Christmas? What could be more permanent and meaningful than a work of art!
Dear Art Lovers,
We are about to leave behind a difficult year for all of us. The pandemic deeply affected the world. I wish that this period will end with the new year and 2021 will bring health, happiness and prosperity to all of us.
As we enter the holiday season, the rush to buy gifts for our loved and valued friends, relatives, customers, business partners and colleagues start. Especially this year we’d like to show that we care about each other.
A senior executive friend who works for a private company called me last week. He stated that they give the same type of gifts to their special customers every year, but they want to present a different, permanent and thoughtfully chosen gift this year, so they want to make a small selection from my fine art photographs.
A photo collector friend said, “A photograph, for me, is a window from my house to the outside.” Wouldn't a different and lasting gift with a lifelong story be meaningful? A gift that opens up their living room, study room or office to other worlds, and reflects her or him through your eyes at the same time.
If your answer is yes, I made a special selection from my fine art photographs for your holiday gifts. You can see this selection at the link alikabasartist.com/gift and order high gloss, archival metal prints made and shipped in the USA at 25% off until December 31, 2020. Just use the coupon code ArtAsGift at checkout. You can also find my other photographs under the Galleries menu as always.
I have three tips for choosing fine art photography as a gift;
If you want to get detailed information about the photographs, you can contact me at my e-mail address.
I hope that 2021 brings health, happiness, luck and prosperity to all of us...

I visited the ancient Carian city of Knidos situated on the Datça peninsula. The only other time I was there was in 1983. I was not sure if would have an opportunity to add a photograph to my "Water's Edge" series, but I did: "Gates of Knidos"
