The Maiden’s Tower – Stuck in Customs

The Maiden’s Tower

Back to Istanbul?

It was a hard decision for our upcoming European tour, but we’ve had to mark Istanbul off the list. Not for safety reasons or anything… mostly as a matter of convenience. I’m sorry to my Istanbul friends, but I promise to come back! 🙂

Daily Photo – The Maiden’s Tower

I didn’t have enough time in Istanbul to visit this little island and go inside the Maiden’s Tower. I was lamenting that for a while, but then I decided it actually looks better from further away. I think that photographers think about destinations differently than other tourists. When I consider visiting a place like this, my first thoughts center around “what is the best perspective?” This is usually a strange line of thought because I need to figure out how to get AWAY from the object so that it looks as interesting as possible.
