Pat Handler has been interested in photography since an early age when she was given her first camera. She joined the Carmel Foundation Photography Workshop after taking two courses in photography at the local community college, and she worked regularly in the black and white darkroom for several years before branching out into color slides and prints. As a teacher of English as a Second Language overseas and in the states, she often used her photographs in the classroom to enhance the teaching materials; and although now retired, she continues to provide photographs for use in language testing. These photographs were taken with a digital camera when she toured Turkey in 2007. They include images of a marketplace in Ankara, the ceiling and objects in the Museum of Anatolian Civilization, also in Ankara, a balloon trip over Cappadocia, and the Byzantine cave churches at the Goreme Open Air Museum.
