pictures taken from the backseat of a car
Praia da Rocha, Portimao, Portugal
love almost empty beaches…
about the last 2 picture: we were on top of a rock…and noticed those older men and women sunbathing…they noticed us (that we are taking pictures of them) and greeted us and we waved them back :)
more pictures from Portugal
second picture, in the center - me.
Many people haven’t even heard about these famous abandoned places. Many of these places are really amazing and magnificent, but they’re also really sad when you take a closer look at them.
For example… and more via the above link
photos from my friend’s phone…
Lunch on Galata Bridge, Istanbul… not the most reasonable place to eat…but going through this experience once or twice is ok :) “experience”? because there are many restaurants and each has outside a person that has to attract clients… and they are serious about this. the food was tasty and we got a 25% discount :)
a cool thing in Turkey, at least in Istanbul, is that after a meal….tea and coffee is on the house.
the streets of Istanbul
panoramic views from the terrace of Aga Kapisi Cafe in Istanbul… it’s near the Süleymaniye Mosque
some views of the Istiklal Avenue in Istanbul, by night. one evening we had dinner and sweet stuff in that Konak Kebap place :)
the pictures were taken on a Thursday evening…been there also on Friday and Saturday and there were many many more people.
a really vibrant pedestrian street.
The Blue Mosque / Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul… part 2
i know, many of the pictures a very similar :)
The Blue Mosque / Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul
again…amazing tile work
we didn’t plan the time of our visit, but when we came we realized that people are queuing!!! you can see the queue in 2 photos. the good part is that we managed to get through another door (legally, don’t worry :) ), with no waiting :D
The New Mosque / Eminönü Mosque from the inside… the outside is here
the tile work is amazing…
An article I wrote for an online magazine from Moldova. Features many of my pictures (of Chisinau and other places from Moldova). Unfortunately, it’s only in Russian. But maybe I’ll translate it to English…
