Welcome to “Inspiration by five”
A series of posts in which I combine my love for photography and my even greater love for travel in order to leave you feeling inspired.
Once a week, I will choose five moments from my travels from a part of our beautiful world that has captured my attention, drawn me in, anchored a piece of my heart and left me wanting more.
This week’s feature –> Istanbul, Turkey
The only city in the world that straddles two different continents, Europe and Asia, divided by the Bosphorus Strait, Istanbul is a place immensely steeped in history having been capital of the Roman Empire, the Byzantine Empire, the Latin Empire, and the Ottoman Empire.
Present day modern Istanbul is a captivating metropolis where modern day living is inexplicably intertwined with traditional eastern values. It’s a melting pot of cultures, civilizations and people.
