당신의 가슴을 두드릴 감동적인 터키여행(동영상)

(1) Comments | Posted October 20, 2014 | 1:02 AM

Watchtower of Turkey from Leonardo Dalessandri on Vimeo.

동서양의 문화와 예술이 어우러진 아름다운 나라 터키. 이토록 신비하고도 이국적인 매력을 지닌 여행지가 또 있을까?

위 동영상은 이탈리아의 레오나르도 다레산드리가 20일 동안 3,500Km의 터키 여정을 찍어 타임랩스(Time-Lapse)로 편집한 것이다. 그는 Vimeo 동영상 밑에 다음과 같이 설명을 덧붙였다. " 거대한 화산 지대 카파도키아, 온천도시로 유명한 파묵칼레, 터키의 수도 이스탄불 같은 지역 풍경부터 터키식 샌드위치 도니르(Doner) 와 차를 즐기며 생활하는 모습도 최대한 담고 싶었습니다. 물론 터키 사람들의 친절한 미소도 빼놓을 수 없었답니다."

레오나르도 다레산드리의 동영상은 숨 가쁘게 흘러가지만, 장면 장면마다 터키의 아름다운 색채와 풍경 그리고 따뜻함으로 가득 차 있다. 그의 멋진 여행 동영상을 더 감상하고 싶다면 여기로 들어가 모로코로 떠나 보시길!

이 고양이의 이름은 클레오다. 유튜브에 동영상을 게시한 이의 설명에 따르면, 클레오는 최근 매기라는 이름의 치와와를 입양했다. 이게 가능하냐고? 아마도 이 동영상을 촬영한 이의 유머러스한 표현이겠지만, 동영상을 보면 굳이 다른 표현도 없을 것 같다. 치와와를 껴안고 쉴 새 없이 핥아주는 모습을 보자. 클레오는 매기를 자신의 새끼처럼 생각하고 있는 게...
