A visual poem of my Izmir - Ankara - Tehran trip with Trans-Asia Express in April 2013.
Just 550D and Tamron 17-50mm accompanied me. All handheld.
2 Weeks. More than 5000km, and lots of friends :)
Shot and edited by me. (aykutalpersoy.com)
Music: Gustavo Santaolalla - The Journey
The quote in the begining is an excerpt from Fernando Pessoa's poem: To Travel
"To travel! Leave countries behind
Be someone else indefinitely,
Having a soul without roots,
Means living only to see
To belong to no one, not even myself
Move ahead always, follow
The absence of any real end
And having the wish to reach it
Traveling this way is really traveling.
But I do so without needing
More than the dream of an opened road.
The rest? Just earth and sky?"
Love and share :)
