Mediterranean Sunset, Turkey

Last Boat Home

Side (SEE-deh), on the Turkish Mediterranean between Antalya and Alanya, is now primarily a tourism resort, with its huge Hellenistic theater, fine museum in a restored Roman bath, and ruins scattered behind thebeaches: two perfect one-kilometer crescents framing the town on either side.

Several decades ago, when I took this photo, the townfolk of Side made a substantial part of their living by fishing, and waited daily for the last boat to make it home to port.
