[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture is dedicated to Sebnem, her husband Ekrem, her 'little' ;-) brother Cem and the rest of her Family. We met few days ago in Istanbul and this was unforgettable time for sure!

*Please take a look at workshop pictures also.

We [with Joanna] were for first time in Turkey. But not for last, I'm sure! Sebnem - a real Lady - showed us miracles of her city. We walked with her and her husband on Bosphorus coast at night, tried real Turkish coffee and nargile [not exactly all of us ;-) ], they've showed us many wonders of Istanbul - interesting places, bridges, Mosques. It was wonderful night with wonderful friends. We were really happy that we could meet [and this is tribute to TN also!]. Next day we took a ship and went to few islands with Sebnem and Cem but this is story for another post :-)

I took this photo during sunrise from our hotel's balcony. Breathtaking view of dream city. We returned from meeting about 2:30AM but I woke up at 5:30AM - there were too many miracles and too little time to waste it for sleep ;-)

I felt in love to Istanbul! I'm sure I'll return to this oriental jewel some day!

And this is good place and time to thank you again my friends - you were so generous, kind and nice to us! We never forget it! And I hope we'll meet again, maybe in Lodz next time :-)

Sorry for chaotic note but we're just returned from our holidays [you know - about 2 hours ago was end of our 36 hours long bus trip]. We're totally exhausted, Joanna is sleeping now and I'm unable to write more ;-) Maybe tomorrow.

By the way - expect flood of photos from Bulgaria, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia and Montenegro and of course Turkey!

Good night ;-)

Great to see you're back Greg. It sounds like you've brought back some wonderful photos from your trip. This one is very nice, with that big yellow ball hovering over the city of Istanbuls silouhette with bird in-flight a remarkable shot. Welcome home & Thank You!

teraz wiem czemu Was tak długo nie było. Turcja.Na początek w 3 odsłonach. Jak zawsze - jest świetnie skomponowane i z dobrymi kolorami. Podobają mi się. Gdy byłem w Stanbule w jednej z dzielnic miejscowi zaskoczyli nas znajomością polskiego i polskimi sklepami ale to inny temat.
Pozdr. Al.
