Project 365: Day 243 – The roosters of Denizli

1st March 2015 – Denizli, Turkey

I have seen them all my life, but never clicked
Those beautiful black-bodied sleuths walking on the grass.
But when I finally had to click a red-plumed rooster,
They were enigmatically made of sheer glass.

The crowing roosters – Denizli, Turkey

Denizli is not a touristy place, and is commonly known only for its proximity to Pamukkale. (which also explains why they dropped by bags at Pamukkale yesterday). But I had made some friends here, and so decided to stay here for my last couple of days in Turkey, and just party it up a little.
But because I had to keep this project running, I had to try and click something today. And the internet gave me some interesting information about a rooster. Apparently, Denizli’s symbol was the Denizli rooster. A well-built breed of rooster, the Denizli rooster has a very commanding presence.
Especially, when it is kept as a huge glass statue in a central park.
So, I went to Cinar park around twilight, to try and catch a glimpse of the famous glass statue of Denizli. The rooster itself was impressive, but sidelined by the surroundings, which had nothing impressive about them.
Well, I was not with much options, so I quickly took whatever pictures I could. And then, there was the customary weekend drinking.
Plenty of it.
