The turkish flag, fully present in Istanbul, reveals a deep nationalist feeling. It is exhibited in each street, on each bridge. In short, everywhere it is glimpsed. It recalls you you are stepping on the pavements of Turkey, as if you could forget where you are.
ISTANBUL, oriental city
The coloredfull district of Galata, the shape of the mosquees shivering in the sunset, the crowded narrow passages of the bazaar wherein a map is still needed, and the dazzling views of Soliman's mosquee from and to the Bosphorus.
ISTANBUL, unusual picture
A musician begging a bit money in the tunel under Galata Bridge. Astonishing picture in a city wherein beggars are few.
THE BOSPHORUS STRAIT, the city's soul
The Bosphorus, the city's soul, without it, Istanbul would not exist or at least would not be so fascinating. Some seagulls fighting for a slice of bread in the wake of a ferry, a bridge hooked high in the sky, a fisherman desparately waiting for a sardine, all those images reflect the deep impact of the strait.
