Photographer's Note

A picturepack with 3 elements, showing the windows of old houses of İstanbul in Balat at the Golden Horn.
Windows and balconies of our houses are perfect evidences of the "joy of life" of the owners.
Sometimes they can be richly decorated with plants like those here. But sometimes quite empty and hopeless.
By the way Balat is a district of İstanbul on the Golden Horn where a great mixture of Greek Orthodox's, Muslims and Jews are living cince centuries in a perfect coexixtence and respect their religions.
There you can see in a quite limited ares, a church, a synagogue and a mosque, sharing the same area.
