Day 4 April 3

Postby jamesfc on Fri Apr 03, 2009 11:56 am

Well, surprise. We are in Germere in Cappadocia and surprise, we have Internet access!

We went downtown Istanbul today and got some photos of the bridge and took some pictures of the city from the top of an ancient tower. As we proceeded through the narrow streets, Meli suddenly realized an old friend of hers lived nearby - a photographer. Not just any photographer, but the official State Photographer for Turkey! His name is Isa Gelik, but unfortunately he doesn't have a website.

He invited us up for chi tea and we had a pleasant visit looking at each other's photos. I really like his work (even though he shoots Nikon!) He really liked my image of the Blue Mosque and wasn't familiar with HDR images.

At noon we left for the airport and it is now about 7:00 Pm after we drove from Kayseri.

A little known fact, tulips are not from Holland, but are from Turkey! Istanbul right now has over 8 million tulips blooming around the city. Here is a photo of the old Byzantium wall with tulips growing in the foreground.
