Photographer's Note

Another birdseye view of my beautiful city at Bosphorus.
Taken from the roof of a 8 flat building close to the entrance of the famous old spice market.
At right towards Bosphorus and at left towards the Golden Horn.

Here a poem of the famous Turkish poet Orhan Veli Kanık about Istanbul :

I listen to Istanbul, my eyes closed
First, a light wind blowing
A soft wind swaying
The leaves in the trees,
And far off in the distance
The tinkling cups of the water-seller
I listen to Istanbul, my eyes closed
I listen to Istanbul, my eyes closed
Now the birds are passing
In high clamoring flocks
Nets are pulled in at the fisheries
A woman's feet graze the water
I listen to Istanbul, my eyes closed
I listen to Istanbul, my eyes closed
The cool covered bazaar
Mahmutpasha, the courtyards
Filled with warbling pigeons
Hammer sounds from the docks
Smells of sweat in my lovely Spring wind
I listen to Istanbul, my eyes closed
An old world drunk in its head
A waterfront palace with a dark boat shed
The humming of the lodos ceases inside
I listen to Istanbul, my eyes closed
I listen to Istanbul, my eyes closed
A pretty young girl walks by
Chased by taunts, come-ons and curses
Something falls from my hand
Surely a rose
I listen to Istanbul, my eyes closed
I listen to Istanbul, my eyes closed
A bird is fluttering in your skirts
Your brow is hot, I know
Your lips are wet, I know, I know
A white moon rises behind the pistachio trees
I understand the pounding of your heart
I listen to Istanbul, my eyes closed
