Here are some more pictures of Şirince. These show the unique architecture that is being restored in the village. Farming is also an important part of the community and the farmers brought both their equipment and their animals to their homes.
Many of the houses were whitewashed with wood timbered shutters and doors.
Village farmers lived in town and it was not usual to see tractors parked along the street. It is a working farm village.
The animals were also housed in the village including this curious goat
Wood had already been gathered for winter and stored in bundles on roofs or fences
Restaurants were scattered among the houses and the streets were usually lines with flowers.
I loved the color of this window
