If you will indulge me - I'd like to share pictures from Istanbul for the week. It's one of the most visually impressive places I have been. So good they named it three times - Byzantium, Constantinople and Istanbul. Continuously occupied for - not far off - three thousand years. currently the city and indeed the Turks in general don't have their sorrows to seek but that is moving towards politics - which we don't do here.
Picture 1 - sunset on the Galata bridge. Looking south across the Golden Horn - the mosque on the skyline is the Suleymaniye. The bridge is the very heart of Istanbul to me.
Picture 2 - On the ferry from Eminonu terminal across the straits to Uskudar - one of the great journeys in the world. When you land at the eastern terminal - you could - theoretically - walk to Beijing without getting your feet wet - you have arrived in Asia. Oh - in Uskudar - they make the best yogurt I've ever eaten.
All pictures posted in this thread were taken with rangefinder cameras and film.
cheers - I.
