Istanbul rooftop


The last morning in Istanbul, a view from the rooftop of the Hotel Nomade. Minarets and chimney tops, the Blue Mosque and a bird.

The Bosphorus is not quite visible in this image - so you'll have to imagine the line of giant ships moving across the horizon, the low moan of their horns mixing with the cries of the seagulls.

Very this a REAL bird...a decoy... or a small painting?

Thanks. It was a real bird. One of those moments where everything worked.
