18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Istanbul Outline

Mosque is a symbol of Istanbul, it is a heart of city emblem. Being gently illuminated by night, it wins admiration. At the time the mosque is not the only illuminated object on the photo: attentive eyes will find a roof-top restaurant—one of those popular places hard to get in when it’s growing dark. That’s Istanbul all over: a city of belief and a city of pleasure at the same time.
