Spice Market

The Spice Bazaar, (Turkish'Mısır Çarşısı', or Egyptian Bazaar) in IstanbulTurkey is one of the oldest bazaars in the city. Located in Eminönü, it is the second largest covered shopping complex after the Grand Bazaar.

The Spice Bazaar is an “L”-shaped building, consisting of 88 vaulted rooms, almost all of which are now divided into an upper and lower story. Monumental gateways are at the ends of both halls, with chambers above each entranceway. The main entrance is in the southwest corner, facing the Yeni Mosque.

Camlica Hill

Camlica Hill ,  Istanbul in all its brilliance, offering a unique perspective on the city.  Located about 4km from Uskudar, Camlica is split into two hills: Küçük Çamlica (‘Little Pine Hill’) and Büyük Çamlica (‘Big Pine Hill’). Büyük Çamlica is the highest point in Istanbul at 267 m above sea level.

We spend about 45 minutes on top of the hill and had our morning tea there.  The views from Büyük Çamlica are truly amazing, with a panoramic vista of all of Istanbul’s main waterways, the Bosphorus Bridge, the historic Eminonu Peninsula, the Princes’ Islands and even Mount Uludag near Bursa.

Stonehenge is a prehistoric, mysterious circle of upright stones in southern England. Construction on the great monument began 5,000 years ago; the famous stones that still stand today were put in place about 4,000 years ago.
If only I have my 18-200mm lens in those days…...

Composition….. those days...

Not even know how to focus…..


Steve Rose described the Eye as follows:
The Eye... exists in a category of its own.... It essentially has to fulfil only one function, and what a brilliantly inessential function it is: to lift people up from the ground, take them round a giant loop in the sky, theny started. That is all it needs to do, and thankfully, that is all it doe

After The Rain

After it rains early in the morning, I took my camera and shot a few photos of the green plants around my garden. ...

Fishing Boat Harbour

Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour is a short walk from the centre of Fremantle. Fremantle is a 20 minute drive from Perth. Fishing Boat Harbour also offers restaurants, cafes and a boutique brewery, making it a must do on any visit to the port city.
The harbour is a fully operational fishing port, meaning there’s always fresh fish on offer – in fact a fresh seafood market sells direct to the public. Take a stroll around the harbour and you’ll see all sorts of maritime activities going on including local fishermen hauling in catches.Waterside restaurants is famous for their seafood especially fish & chip. It is a popular spot for locals and visitors. 
Unfortunely at that time , I’m so new to photography and still using my PEN Olympus camera that I bought only about 1 week before my tour….much more, travelling is my interest, not photography . So I don’t really cares for the angle, composition or subject to shoot.
