The Clock Tower is the meeting point of İzmir’s people. It has been around for 110 years, standing as a witness to the passing of time since 1901.
The Clock Tower bears special meaning for me, and I have been constantly taking photographs of it for three years.
The Clock Tower is indispensable to İzmir, and the pigeons are indispensable to the clock tower. The pigeons that keep circling the clock are the tower’s best friends.
A rainy evening in İzmir. Darkness has fallen and the waters have started to drain. The bright face of the Clock Tower tears through the darkness, illuminating the surface of the manhole cover below.
I later learned that a full moon lines up with the Clock Tower once every four years.
Undoubtedly, another of the Clock Tower’s indispensable features is children. It is quite worth seeing the love these children have for animals as they go chasing after the birds in vain.
İzmir only has one Clock Tower, but this number went up to two through my efforts. Again, it is after rainfall and there is yet another magnificent reflection. The Clock Tower dances on the raindrops with its splendid beauty.
