EyeEm Ankara Meetup by Cem Aydin on EyeEm

Here’s a recap from Cem Aydin:

All the participants of EyeEm Ankara Meetup came together at Cern Modern at 1 pm. Then, we started to walk without losing our enthusiasm and joy in spite of the cold weather to Gençlik Park which is located in Ankara’s first settlement, Ulus. The amusement park in Gençlik Park took us to the memories in our childhood. We had a talk with all the participants about the rides in the park and meanwhile eternalised these memories by taking photos again and again.

We had great fun by getting on the ferris wheel and shooting the lovely panoramic view. By getting through the park we changed our route to the place which is the symbol of Ankara and where the foundation of the republic was laid, namely the old national assembly. We arrived at the assembly by taking photos throughout the pace. As we were wandering in the museum of assembly, we added the beauties here in our archives.

We took a break for a hot drink because of the cold weather, so headed over to the terrace restaurant of Atalay Hotel in Ulus which has a beautiful view. In one side, there is the Roman Bath, in the other side there is one of Ankara’s headstones, Ankara Castle. After getting warm and recharging our batteries, we went out again to shoot the statue of Atatürk which is the symbol of Ulus. The pigeons around the statue gave a magic touch to our photos. After completing our photos here, by coming back to our starting point Cern Modern, through our arrival path, we put an end to this great and perfect day.
