13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Istanbul skyline from the Galata Tower

This photo displays more than just a skyline of Istanbul. From the top of Galata Tower, one can see the geographic distributions of city districts. Closest to the tower is the old city which is mainly for tourists. The buildings look old and some are even run down. As one proceeds to the back of the image, one can see the business district with all of the skyscrapers.
