Travels with Hugh


Hugh Loomis our trusted architectural photographer consultant recently took a trip to Turkey.  Today Turkey retains many ruins of the ancient world, artifacts of cities from the distant past.  Hugh retains his artist eye while traveling and gave us pictures he captured at Aspendos in southern Turkey.  The ancient city of Aspendos is dominated by the best preserved theatre of antiquity with seating for 15,000.  The galleries, stage decorations and acoustics all reflect the ability of the architect Zenon.  Close to the theatre, basilica and agora lay the remains of an aqueduct, one of the largest in Anatolia.  Hugh can be reached at: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
