Photographer's Note

How much of human life is lost in waiting?
R.W.Emerson

This photograph was taken inside a coffee shop in Ortaköy facing the Ortaköy Mosque.

Ortaköy Mosque, officially the Büyük Mecidiye Camii (Grand Imperial Mosque of Sultan Abdülmecid) in İstanbul, is situated at the waterside of the Ortaköy pier square, one of the most popular locations on the Bosphorus.

The original Ortaköy Mosque was built in the 18th century. The current mosque, which was erected in its place, was ordered by Sultan Abdülmecid and built between 1854 and 1856. Its architects were Armenian father and son Garabet Amira Balyan and Nigoğayos Balyan, who designed it in Neo-Baroque style.

The wide, high windows let the ever-changing light reflections of the Bosphorus shine in the mosque.

I dedicate this photo to my dear friend Fügen Özkinay.

BEKLE
Geleceğim bekle dedi
Ben beklemedim o da gelmedi
ölüm gibi birşeydi
Ama kimse ölmedi

Ne diyelim, hasretlik zor duygu :)

Selamlar herkese,
Biraz "saturate" kullandım bu fotoğrafta.
Yorum ve eleştirilerinizi bekliyorum.
Teşekkürler,
