I traveled to Istanbul, Turkey on an impromptu trip with my husband. Honestly, I didn’t know much about Turkey up until the week that we took our trip. I was in for such a pleasant surprise with the graciously kind people and beautiful old sites. From stone walls built in the Byzantine Empire to a hip Turkish restaurant standing right next to it, the contrast of old and new was quite remarkable how well it all fit together. Here are some pictures I took on my Leica of my memorable adventure.
