A Guest Photographer

Have you seen the movie called "Smoke"? Augustus "Auggie" Wren (the smoke shop owner played by Harvey Keitel) takes the same picture, at the same time everyday... And he has an album of those pictures...

My brother lives in a nice neighborhood in Istanbul, with a breathtaking view of a part of the city and the mighty Bosphorus.

He recently took practically the same picture at different times of the day (I doubt it was the same day) and I really liked these pictures.

His balcony, the sleepless nights filled with fascinating conversations, tons of fruits, a remarkable amount of liquor are what these pictures reminded me off and I wanted to share them with you.

Next week on Tuesday, I will be heading to Costa Rica for two weeks.
Obviously I will be taking tons of pictures and believe it or not, I will try to post a few teaser if I can. Nothing is promised, but I wouldn't like to deprive you from my photography (!)


If I cannot post during the time I am away, I promise you that the few weeks following my return will be reserved for the pictures of this Central American country.

Until then, as usual, thank you for visiting!


  1. Oh my God, I want to stand in that same spot one day, it's now officially on my bucket list. So breathtaking! I hope God provides me with the resources to travel to places like this and see it with my own eye. The talent obviously runs in the family, because I feel like I'm there. When I get home tonight I'm going to look at these pictures again and dream beautiful dreams.

  2. Tolga, these are breathtaking . . . brings me right back to New Years Eve, standing in that very spot, surrounded by people I love, ringing in the new year. Thank you for sharing.
