Photo Essay: Istanbul


Istanbul is a city that I love  (for many reasons , many personal), it is  very charming, old and new melt together in one unique place.

Few weeks ago, I revisited the city, in search of the ‘Turkish Model.”  here are some of my photos.

All photos are mine:

The magnificent Hagia Sofia 

Inside Hagia Sofia

( beat the crowd by visiting late)

Sulemaniye Mosque at sunset

 

The Turkish model

The new reality

 

I never thought I will see black dress code in Istanbul 

( some are Arab tourists)

The faith

The Grand Bazar

( virtually empty during Friday prayer)

Alas…. it has to end!

  1. Hi Nervana,

    Having lived in Istanbul for several years and with strong personal links to it, I understand where you are coming from with this photo essay. These are the same pictures I would have noticed and posted.
