Photographer's Note

How much of human life is lost in waiting?
This photograph was taken inside a coffee shop in Ortaky facing the Ortaky Mosque.

Ortaky Mosque, officially the Byk Mecidiye Camii (Grand Imperial Mosque of Sultan Abdlmecid) in İstanbul, is situated at the waterside of the Ortaky pier square, one of the most popular locations on the Bosphorus.

The original Ortaky Mosque was built in the 18th century. The current mosque, which was erected in its place, was ordered by Sultan Abdlmecid and built between 1854 and 1856. Its architects were Armenian father and son Garabet Amira Balyan and Nigoğayos Balyan, who designed it in Neo-Baroque style.

The wide, high windows let the ever-changing light reflections of the Bosphorus shine in the mosque.

I dedicate this photo to my dear friend Fgen zkinay.
Geleceğim bekle dedi
Ben beklemedim o da gelmedi
lm gibi birşeydi
Ama kimse lmedi

Ne diyelim, hasretlik zor duygu :)

Selamlar herkese,
Biraz "saturate" kullandım bu fotoğrafta.
Yorum ve eleştirilerinizi bekliyorum.
