How difficult is shooting pictures in a city like Paris? Everybody knows everything about Paris, try to catch the moments and compose your pictures your way.
It’s easy, that’s Paris!
Cross roads at Alexander III bridge
Yes, Europe is in France …

The city never sleeps in Place de la Republique.
In the last months I had the lucky chance to visit one after the other Rome, Jerusalem and Istanbul. All of them filled with history and cultural traditions. For variety of people, colours and architecture, I have no doubts crowning Istanbul as top location for photography.
I was in Istanbul only for 4 days. In such short time I had so much fun in picturing this wonderful city day and night! 1 Bosporus by night – arrival to Istanbul 2 Turkish finger food in Istanbul harbour 3 The amazing word of Hagia Sophia 4 Humans of Istanbul 5 Fishing at Galata bridge 6 The seafront of Istanbul 7 Turkish boats 8 Birds of prey in Istanbul 9 The Imperial Harem of the Topkapi 10 Istanbul sight from the Galata tower 11 Mosques of Istanbul 12 The Topkapi Park
Enjoy Artborghi last (maybe not!) shots from Istanbul, another sunset, this time leaving this marvellous city from the same place our trip started.
Seagulls will be the main reason for buying an extra SD card before going to Istanbul.
As well as the long, colorful sunsets on the Suleiman Mosque while leaving the harbour
Take the ferry just before the sunset: you will gain hours of wonderful shooting!
Watch out: Bosporus fires (sunset reflections on windows) are turning on!
So that when you reach the Bosporus bridge …
…you can shoot the last lights on “The City”. Istanbul, see you again!
From the top terrace of the Galata tower (here its shadow on the cityscape), a view on the North side of Istanbul. Mosques and modern building adorned with satellite dishes mix at sunset. Istanbul has around 15 millions of inhabitants and it stretches from the Marmara sea, a north-east Mediterranean appendix, up to the Bosporus, gate to the Black sea.
Watching south, the historical Istanbul centre, with the Topkapi Saray (=palace), residence of the Sultan, the blue mosque and in the distance the new modern area outside of the Topkapi walls. Modern and ancient quarters ae connected among the others by the modern Ataturk bridge.

you can meet the ruins of an abandoned settlement at the side of the motor road:
a black, hot ribbon that cuts through a couple of check-points to reach the shores of the Dead Sea.
Pools of water evaporation
Enjoy the colours and shapes of this waters containing 34% of salt (10 times more than Mediterranean sea)
and its atolls made out precipitated salt
Relax by floating on the water surfaces
but keep this extremely salty water out of mouth and eyes… otherwise …

It has been a long ride, dear readers, and it is time to wrap up some numbers. From January to October 2013 artborghi published more than one post every two days, which means:
– 173 posts and 1,509 pictures uploaded
On your side, you gave artborghi a warm feedback:
– 492 comments, 371 followers, 43,387 contacts, 299 links (and much more)
… and especially a huge motivation to go on publishing. From now on the scheduling of new posts will change a bit: work pressure and shorter days will not stop artborghi, just slow it down a tiny bit, like when a bear sniffs the next winter approaching …
For the moment, I thank you so much … and stay tuned for the “not to far away” next post!
