Photographer's Note

The Maiden's Tower in Istanbul is one of the more popular subjects to photograph.

Deniz was in agreement that we shouldn't leave Istanbul without capturing it, so he took us here in the evening.

It was without question the most comfortable blue hour photo shoot i've ever been on. Why you ask?

We had front row seating at a table right along the river. In this area locals and tourists can be seated and served food, kind of like an outdoor restaurant.

All I had to do was set up my composition with the tripod, and continue sitting in my chair while I eat and drink. Occasionally i'd hit the shutter button.

In the far bg on the left, you can see a couple of Mosques in the city center. Over hundreds of years, you could easily imagine the various uses of this small tower. It's been used as a lighthouse, a watch tower, a prison, a quarantine center, and today its actually a restored restaurant and night club.

Hope you like it
