Crossing into Asia
Here’s the first time I’m not going to recommend you watch a video. It’s maybe the most boring one I’ve ever made! But, you know, a lot of getting to-and-fro from one photography location to another can be rather banal. The most notable thing is what it was like to go from the Ritz-Carlton over on the European continent in Turkey across a cool bridge over to the Asian side with a lot of traffic. Sound exciting eh? Well, it’s not really… but here it is anyway! 🙂
Daily Photo – Istanbul Wedding Crasher
After I got over to the hilltop right before sunset, I decided the spot was actually rubbish and I had wasted my time. It's another one of those times when locals tell you about “amazing” places to go for photos, and then you get there are realized they are not photographers at all. It's way too far away from the city, and it's hard to get a decent sunset shot here. I figured this out after 5 minutes, barely found a taxi, and then in Extremely Broken Turkish + Google Maps, explained that I wanted to go down to the seaside on the Asian side. I walked along the shore for about 2 km during sunset. It was great! Right when it started to get quite dark, I came across this scene… That's the “Maiden's Tower” on the island in the background on the left there. A beautiful spot!
