Exotic Istanbul

Traveling to Turkey has been a dream come true for me. I was finally able to make that happen in late 2015. When I came back from the 7 day trip everyone asked what it was like, my answer was always that it was like a “photographer’s paradise”.

The skyline in Istanbul was completely immersed with layers of history and culture from all over the world, and it just blew my mind away. I only ever read about places like the Hagia Sophia and the Blue mosque in history textbooks, and to finally have been up close and personal with all of it was breathtaking. This post has some of my pictures from that trip.
