Istanbul Photography Walks
Grand Hotels, Shacks and Cemeteries.
(open to everyone, photographers and not)
Meeting up in Pera, we visit some of the grand old hotels of the Orient Express then walk down through the run-down Kasimpasa once a very important port, home to the Ottoman fleet. Before hopping onto a ferry we will break for lunch in a soup restaurant and then on to the conservative neighborhood of Eyup, home of the sacred Eyup Sultan Mosque with it's exquisite 15th cent. tiles, showing us a significant change in atmosphere and an expansive cemetery overlooking the inlet. An optional stop for tea/coffee at the Pier Loti cafe in the cemetery itself.
