Digistanbul



P7301490

I thought i can as well blog in English again. Although it is much more convenient to do it in German, English is much more inclusive, and maybe it 'pays' in the long run.

So, today I feature the rest of the images taken in Istanbul.

this one sums up alot of things: deep religiosity in some parts of the city, pidgeons as metaphor for the cities lively athmosphere, the flag on a shopping bag, the whole setting quite telling for the old parts.

schöne serie!
kann mich erinnern, dass mich vor einigen jahren die hagia sophia auch weniger beeindruckt hat als erwartet... dafür dann umsomehr die blaue mosche.
die schaufensterpuppen sind scary...
