Istanbul-Princess Islands

My lovely hometown!A dream City!I miss you so much.Every time I visit you,I feel myself much more stranger in you....And so goes on my sentences in me that I can't reveal.It has changed so much;everything,every corner.Getting more cosmopolitan day by day leaving back no more traces from my childhood.And, I want that Istanbul that I had once had.
Last spring I visited the Princess Islands and the last time I visited the islands was about 20 years ago.Admittedly,these islands are still the only places that have changed the least.
Let's go on with the pics.I hope you ll enjoy them.
For more information on the islands,visit here:

These shots above are from the European side of the city named as Sultanahmet and Eminönü.Two famous mosques:The Blue Mosque and St.Hagia Sophia behind the ferryboat.
And now with the Asian side:
A very famous building in this part:Haydarpaşa Central Train Station.




Just above,in the background,Çamlica Peak.İstanbul's one of the highest points serving as broadcast station.

Haydarpaşa Military Base and the port.

As soon as the ferry arrived on the first island,I noticed a gull waiting for us...Just on time.Seems very serious.His father should be an eagle,I bet.

Look who is it waiting for!!!

In ten seconds the port is full of cats and gulls around this lady.She was feeding them.Gulls and cats sharing the food.

One must have tried hard to do these ornaments.

Never in my life have I seen a mosque like this.An Apartment Mosque,not in its usual architecture.




Horsecarts are the only means of transportation.No moto vehicles are allowed on the island.Not even bikes or scooters.

Houses,mansions let's say,are stunning.


Horseman,riding too fast.A vibey shot.Sorry for that.



More will come soon.

No bikes allowed.I mentioned that above. Aren't you fed up with bikes and exhausts?Pics from a different part of the world dont interest you as much as bikes?

We took a cruise this summer. I loved the Bosphorus tour. The Mosques were so amazing. The scene from the water was one of my favourites. Like nothing I have ever seen. Then we went into town for dinner. What lovely people we met. The first guy I talked to had a Rossi replica helmet. I want to return to Turkey again.
