Photographer's Note

Şile is a small holiday town on the Black Sea, 70 km from the city of Istanbul, Turkey. In 2000 the population was 32,923 of which 10,571 live in the town of Şile and the remainder in surrounding villages, including Ağva. However between June and September the population multiplies with residents of the city who have summer houses here.

At weekends though, and especially on a hot summer Sunday Şile is crowded with day-trippers from the poorer districts of the city, who come packed into minibuses and vans to picnic, play football and leave litter on the beach. There are a number of bars and restaurants with sea views, especially in the little park around the lighthouse
