Photographer's Note

The main photo is this one

Gert is a lucky guy, he got a photo of San Gimignano from Rosemary and now a gift from me (to celebrate a month anniversary of our meeting :)).
Today morning I saw Gert's photo of this Valens aqueduct in Istanbul. Gert wrote:

I am not sure how much has changed in this area during the 36 years since this photo was taken. At least in 1974 I was pleased to find a playground placed in front of the ruins.

Well, let's see if I have any photo. Bingo! I have one. Isn't is amazing? My photo was made in EXACT the same place but 39 years later. As we can see, not like in the case of Karl's Church in Vienna, they didn't renovated the aqueduct, it looks in the same state. But instead of playground there is highway. There are also the people in my photo, but now they are closed in cars and buses.
I made this photo on my last day in Istanbul. I had a flight back to Warsaw in the afternoon, so I got up early and ran to see a few more mosques, this aqueduct and last sight of Eminonu. When I was waiting on the crossing, unexpectedly I met Deniz! Istanbul is not so big after all, people just meet on the street. I was very happy to see him, We could say good bye with beer and tea.
And look at the funny monument near the aqueduct.

Big photo in beta

See workshop!!
