travel, Turkey

Istanbul’s enchanting melancholia.

Istanbul’s one of my favourite places ever. Last time I was there was almost three years ago, and these are some of the photos from that journey. I spent my days sitting with fishermen, drinking black tea, trying to play backgammon, and – getting lost in the sea.

Marmara sea and sunsets and sunrises over Bosphorus are beyond words. Everything in Istanbul feeds itself on that endless blue beauty. It’s life. And what is so incredible – there’s this instant nostalgia, even if you’re for the first time in Istanbul and know nothing about it, I’m sure you would feel it. The beauty of a landscape resides in its melancholy. That’s how Pamuk started his book on Istanbul. From my very first day there, I understood what he meant.

Enjoy the photos.
