22nd February 2015 – Istanbul, Turkey
Friends had come, and friends had gone.Its me and my backpack again, battling one more day.The morning light is beautiful, and tickles my senses.But its the night, and a distant tower, that I fancy today.
So, I am back to travelling alone again, since my friends for the last few days have moved on to other travel plans.
The day was spent being lazy, and just eating a whole lot of durums (wraps) from street side shops. I tried to click the vendors, but the pictures didn’t come out too satisfactory.
At night, I grabbed my tripod, and took a walk to the Sirkeci ferry port, to look at the Asian side and take some night photos. And that’s when I saw how beautiful the Galata tower looked at from this side of the Galata bridge.
The Galata tower is an old stone tower in the Galata region. Although I stayed here before, I didn’t think of taking a picture of it for the longest time.
But I had to see it from a far distance to admire how it dominates the entire Istanbul panorama.
