Istanbul Trip, Day 7, Scene 3
One might ask if we had any sensation of being under water. The answer is, and should be, no, other than the map of stations indicating where the line goes under water (see workshop).
The other concern for engineers and seismologists and any other thinking person is that the tunnel is only about 18 kilometres (11 mi) from the active North Anatolian Fault. Since AD 342, this fault has seen large earthquakes that each claimed more than 10,000 lives. Scientific calculations to estimate the probability that at some time in the next 30 years the area will suffer an earthquake of strength 7.0 or more produced an outcome of 77 percent. The waterlogged, silty soil on which the tunnel is constructed has been known to liquefy during an earthquake; to solve this problem, engineers injected industrial grout down to 24 metres (79 ft) below the seabed to keep it stable. The walls of the tunnel are made of waterproof concrete coated with a steel shell, each independently watertight. The tunnel is made to flex and bend, similar to the way tall buildings are constructed to react if an earthquake hits. Floodgates at the joints of the tunnel are able to close and isolate water in the event of the walls' failure. All this technical mumbo-jumbo reminds me of the extraordinary safety features of the unsinkable Titanic.
İstanbul Seyahati, Gün 7, Sahne 3
Biri sorabilir, eğer su altında olmanın herhangi bir algısı var mıydı diye. Cevap, hattın nerede su altında gittiğini gösteren istasyon haritası dışında (atölyeye bakınız), hayırdır ve öyle olmalıdır.
Mühendis ve sismologlar ve diğer düşünen kişiler için diğer endişe, tünelin aktif Kuzey Anadolu Fayından sadece yaklaşık 18 kilometre (11 mil) uzakta olmasıdır. M. S. 342 yılından beri, bu fay her birinin 10.000'den fazla cana malolduğu büyük depremler görmüştür. Önümüzdeki 30 yıl içindeki bir zamanda gücü 7.0 ya da daha fazla bir deprem yaşama olasılığının tahmini için bilimsel hesaplamalar bir yüzde 77 sonuç üretmiştir. Tünelin üzerine inşa edildiği balçıklaşmış killi toprağın bir deprem sırasında sıvılaşacağı bilinmektedir; bu sorunu çözmek için, mühendisler deniz dibini istikrarlı tutmak için altına 24 metre (79 ayak) kadar endüstriyel harç enjekte ettiler. Tünelin duvarları, her biri bağımsız su geçirmez bir şekilde, bir çelik kabukla kaplanmış su sızdırmaz betondan imal edilmiştir. Tünel, bir deprem isabet ederse yüksek binaların tepkisine benzer şekilde davranması için inşa edilerek esnek ve bükülebilir yapılmıştır. Tünelin eklemlerindeki selkapıları duvarların arızası durumunda kapanabilir ve suyu izole edebilir. Bütün bu teknik hokuspokus bana batmaz Titanikin olağanüstü güvenlik özelliklerini hatırlatıyor.

Interesantan tekst o tunelu sa opisom, lep pogled na unutrasnjost voza ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazan vagon sa putnicima, lepe boje.
Sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
An interesting article on the tunnel with a description, a nice view of the interior of the train ...
Good time recording, contrast and perspective, well shown passenger carriages, beautiful colors.
Passengers enjoy the beautiful car.
All the best in the new week that started, good luck.

Excellent shot from inside the metro. I like here all the rows here, giving splendid depth. So, no sensation going so deep under water? The safety of it must be a great concern, specially when we think about unsinkable Titanic or later, Fukushima. But the realization of this long dream must be a great thing anyway.

very informative note! there is much space in this underground train, and the persons face to face seem to be patient to reach the next station. Only one mobile phone!
Royaldevon (26617) 2014-04-29 0:42
Very interesting notes and, though there will always be a risk, at least engineers have done as much as is possible, by today's standards, to make it 'safe'.
Great use of guide lines and a sense of perspective, in this very detailed, well composed shot.
Have a great day,

iyi cesaret. neyse ki günlük rotamın üzerinde değil de kullanmak zorunda kalmadım henüz. ayda bir çıkan su sızıntısı haberleri de insanı iyice işkillendiriyor zaten. sanırım en iyisi fotoğraflardan görmek.

Nice Long shot down the carriage. Cant believe how clean and un crowded it is.

It is probably very unlikely that this train will ever hit an iceberg ;-). On the other hand there are lots of buildings in Istanbul where I wouldn't like to be when the city is hit by the giant earthquake, so whoever knows hof safe this is. For the time being this remains an enjoyable photo of a very orderly looking interior of a train. There is excellent depth and very good light and it is afer all a bit exciting to consider that this somewhere under the Bosphorus.

That's what i usually do while riding a bus or train, Murat, just watching people.
Interesting subject. Good afternoon,
pierrefonds (54962) 2014-04-29 13:38
The length of the train is giving depth to the composition. You have captured well a daily actvityu of the passengers travelling on the train toward their destinations. The surronding light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

This is fantastic, love your Dof, and the roof reflections, very interesting note, knowing how deep under the water these guys are.

You're capturing well this daily scene by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the inside of line which is running the tunnel under water. I can see many ordinary regidents who are sitting the seat and the modern interior of wagon. When it says from my experience, this photograph is one of the courageous approach. Anyway, I understand that The essence in consideration of a natural disaster and material engineering of civil engineering is required of an undersea tunnel, as you note in here. Even in Japan, there is an undersea tunnel which connects Hokkaido to Aomori.

very provoking title and a great not to accompany this scene. I would like to photograph people in the public transportation as they do so many interesting things but I am quite shy and am afraid someone may not like it. But your result works encouraging. It seems quite modern indeed so clean and shiny. I guess we always risk our lives while in travel, is it an earthquake or something else...
Very well done, thanks for sharing,
abmdsudi (39634) 2014-04-30 20:14
Great place for people watching and plenty of photos to make in this train, they provide colourful visual aspect as they welcome attention, so by adding these colourful people to the scene, photograph gives it own story to be formed in viewers mind. Perspective and depth is so great and the exposure is fine well managed It is a fascinating feature of our daily urban lives but also because it is entertaining experience as well. Finely done and good observation, Congrats.
P/S It's just my serious hobby and passion, thks for your interest.
ourania (26456) 2014-05-02 11:42
this tunnel is certainly amazing both as a concept and as a technical realization. The passengers look so relaxed and used to the this trip, I would feel awe. Your picture is perfectly clear and well illuminated. I like very much the perspective and how the composition starts with the nearest passengers, you almost make us share the experience of sitting there with them. The colours are real and vivid. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Must be some risk or so people seem to be so, so serious, just waiting to croos, only a cell phone is used
Informative note for the good interior capture
Like the blue file of handles going to the back, helping with perspective
fritzi007 (2766) 2014-05-04 13:15
wirklich eine interessante Aufnahme, vor allem die Sauberkeit springt mir ins Auge, im Gegesatz zu Paris!
jcpix (11478) 2014-05-07 16:13
Wow, certainly one of the last places you'd want to be in the event of a natural disaster. On the other hand, it's a unique and fascinating idea. I always love these types of pictures, it not only gives us an insiders look into the locals daily life, but it's fun to see each persons character and mannerism as they're frozen in time at this particular moment. The poor lady on the left has the dreaded zombie metro face going on...it's a long ride. :) Enjoy the rest of the evening. Take it easy.
jmdias (52650) 2014-05-07 17:57
a real scene of the daily life. I liked these details of the people and the train. an image informative and perfect.TFS.

Murat, it's pleasant to not forget me! Good note about the earthquake and excellent view of inside of the subway, a daily life picture I appreciate, all the best, regards
