Photographer's Note

I wish all the best for turkish people. Today is 29 October. Republic of Turkey was founded on October 29, 1923 from remnants of the Ottoman Empire.

Istanbul is bounded on the north and the south by two seas, the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara, respectively. The western half of the city lies in Europe while the eastern half is situated in Asia; in between the two halves flows the Bosphorus Strait. Istanbul, representing the Asian city nearest Europe and the European city closest to Asia, is a leading port whose importance is stressed by the age-old trade routes passing through the Bosphorus.
Throughout its history, Istanbul has maintained its position as the heart of the economy. The city today is the backbone of Turkey’s economy.

Istanbul generates 46% of the national exports and imports 40% of the total imports of Turkey.

The possessor of many positive features in terms of history and culture, Istanbul is making great strides towards becoming an international tourism center. In recent years, the city, by virtue of its accommodation and convention facilities, is also heading toward the top as a center of convention tourism.
