Photographer's Note

Old and new, traditions and the future - and the ever present red and white Turkish flag. This is not the most frequent view from Istanbul but yet very typical of this mega city.

Taken somewhere on the hillside between the Süleymaniye Mosque and the Egyptian spice bazaar (Mısır Çarşısı), looking across the non-visible Golden Horn (Haliç) towards the city's most modern areas. This is all in the European part of Istanbul.
