An Istanbul Photo Story


No matter how much I try, I will never be as comfortable with words as I am with images. I’m still going to keep writing, but I would like to start posting a lot more photo stories, starting with this one of my time spent exploring Istanbul, Turkey.
































A little feedback would be great;

If I’m calling it a photo story, would you prefer me to organize the photos in a sequence? Or do you like the way it is set up now, with no theme in particular?

    Your photos provide a wonderful view and flavor of the city. A short description under each photo would be the icing on the cake. 🙂

      Thank-you :]
      That’s a great idea, I will try that on the next post. Thanks!

    I agree with Susan 🙂 I think the sequence is not as important as simply a brief description below each picture (or maybe above the pictures? This way you can add a few pictures under the same description, if, for example, it were the same building / market).

    I love your photos and am looking forward to more photo stories of this kind!

      Ah thanks! I will definitely include captions next time, and then try grouping a few together like that the next time. Love the suggestions 😀

    Thank you for NOT uploading your photo stories as slideshows where I must press the next icon each time to load the next image. I hate doing that!

    I love the seagull photo too, reminded me of Angry Birds 🙂
    I like the way they are with a brief description.

    On my honeymoon! Spent a week in Maldives on a tropical resort (put it on your bucket list) originally from Mississauga. We arrived in Istanbul Thursday AM and fly back to YYZ Sunday lunch time.

    Thanks for your tips on Taxim. We spent most our time in Fatih old istanbul where homeless cats run the streets but really cool.

    Keep up the great blog work. We’re headed to Taxim and trying to catch a football match or take a ferry along the Holden Horn today. Cheers

      I hope you had an awesome time in Taksim and safe flight home. You’ll have to let me know what you saw and if you enjoyed it :]

    I feel the exact same as you. I’m so much more comfortable posting images! I prefer viewing this type of photo essay with no particular theme. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks for the input–I prefer it in this style myself. I’d rather have to think about an image than have a caption under each one :]

      Thanks! I used a Nikon D300 but edited them with RadLab.

        ok, that makes sense! they’re too sharp to have been taken with a mobile phone.
