As I traveled in Cappadocia, Ankara and Istanbul as the three of largest cities in Turkey, I found and took photos of beautiful unique textures that expresses its country’s style. For example, the shapes of sand or rocks as one of the impressive natural textures have innate rhythm that forms into a pattern. Also there are beautiful colourful hand painted tiles.
