Description Sunset on Sleymaniye Mosque...At ones first glance there are two things that are particularly remarkable in the ancient monuments of the Ottomans: the choice of the site and the perfect unity of the whole.

Hello. My name is Niyazi
I live and work in Istanbul. I started as a hobby became a little more serious when started a photoblog one years ago.
I try to take different subject, as often as I can and these will usually be captured in Istanbul. Istanbul is an old old city, you can see the remains of many ancient civilizations and their culture in harmony with Turkish culture. The old versus the new, the traditional versus the modern is a conflict a visitor often observes.
