Three in one

Today I realized that I tend to think/believe that miracles (unexpected fortunate events that happen without the person's direct influence/input) mostly happen to young people. Well maybe mostly, yes, they do happen to young people but to older people miracles happen as well of course. And its unbelievable that I could think otherwise...
Above has nothing to do with my today's post. It was just my thought of the day which I shared with you. Hope you don't mind.
Today's photo is called "Three in one" because it unifies ceramic roof tiles, river stone fences and mountains of Sheki that I mentioned in my earlier posts. Although experts say that one shouldn't believe to "2 in 1" products I think it doesn't apply here :). Meet my husband, Teymur, who has taken all the photos of this blog so far.

Hello Ayten,

Nice to meet the photographer. You live in an amazingly beautiful place. A question: is the whole house made out of stone or just the terrace?

Ayten said...

Hi! Thank you, Fenix.

Usually only the bottom part of the houses or terrace.

I have a confession to make. I live in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, 360 km away from Sheki. But I travel to Sheki quite often.

Thank you for your support to my blog.

An interesting narrative. I like your photograph, three in one.

I got to fly last night. I mean I just dove in and flew. You can find out how on my blog post today.

You are welcome, Ayten. I love your blog. Your husband's photos are great and your writing complements them nicely. Excellent teamwork :).

Me again, Ayten. I just saw your husband's work and had to come back to tell you how much I liked it. His sculptures are expressions of a unique creative vision. Delightful work.

Assalamu Alaikum
(may Allah's peace by upon you)

I came to know about you through your wonderful sister; some how i have a curiosity about these ex USSR countries, i use to refer them as central Asia till a wise friend from Baku told me that Azerbaijan was in Western Asia. I did search a lot of different sites to learn about Sheki, it was like reading a dictionary; you got the word and there's your meaning compare to this wonderful blog of yours.

Really like your writing and the personal touch that you give, make me feel that i am already there.

Insha Allah i will visit these countries and definitely Azerbaijan and not to mention that it also got the most wonderful people there.

Until then i will just visit Azerbaijan from your eyes.

PS: I had send you an edited version of the photo, Undoubtedly it a very beautiful scenery but i felt that the great man should have a spot light on him so we see him better.
