Photographer's Note

This time I am inspired by craig's photos. He likes abandoned houses, cars, boats and even planes. This is an abandoned house from Kumkapı (meaning 'sand gate' in Turkish), a quarter in Fatih district of Istanbul. It is located along the northern shore of Marmara Sea. Up to recent times, Kumkapı was mostly inhabited by Turkish Armenians, who still have a community school and several churches there. The quarter is famous for its many fish restaurants; therefore attracting many local and foreign tourists round the year.
It is very interesting place, with many old buildings. A pity I had no time to explore it more. I saw this abandoned house not far from a wonderful little mosque - Kucuk Ayasophya (I will post later).
These cute kittens are stray cats, as so many in Istanbul.
