Just a Dog
Turkey, Asklepion of Pergamon, Sept. 2013
As a dog lover I am tempted to photograph every dog who is willing to pose for me. This dog was quite willing because of the heat (35 C).
The photo was taken at the Asklepion site near the ancient city of Pergamon. Asklepion was an ancient centre of healing and medicine within sight of the magnificent city of Pergamon. It is believed that Asklepion, built in the name of Aesculapius, the god of Health and Medicine, has existed since the 4th century BC. It is down on the plains with Pergamon situated high above on the mountain (see next picture).
