best director

Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan has won Cannes Film Festival's Best Director award on Sunday for his searing family drama "Three Monkeys ".
Ceylan is one of my favorite photographers, who is a master of shooting beautiful images.

Congratulations, I watched it live too. You are right Ceylan has wonderful photos on his site.

He's almost as talented as you are ;)

Congratulations to Turkey and to Mr. Ceylan. I echo Eric's thoughts, Monoblog.

Thank you Jilly, actually this award took him by complete surprise.

Thanks a lot Blognote. Its true that I get a lot of inspiration through him.

Thank you for your generous thoughts Ineke.

Thanks for your generosity Eric; I wish I could reach his level of photography one day. If they will not show Three Monkeys there, I can send you a DVD.

Thanks so much for visiting m+p. Glad you like my photos. In fact Turkey's Mor ve Otesi ranked seventh with its song 'Deli' in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Thank you Petrea. Turkey should proud of Mr. Ceylan as he dedicated the prize to his "lonely and beautiful country, which he loves passionately."

Petrea said...

Monoblog, you're loaded with talent. All you need is a model as compelling as Mr. Ceylan's father!

monoblog said...

Thanks again Petrea; I have one compelling model in mind but she's far away, in sunny California. :-)

Petrea said...

Well, if she has a brain in her head she'll visit Izmir and ask a brilliant photographer to take her photo by the sea.

monoblog said...

Petrea, she and her family are always welcomed to visit Izmir then...
