Taksim Square, Istanbul – Wednesday HDR


If you click this photo you can see a much bigger version, which is good because there's a lot to see – all the little people and the yellow cabs around Taksim Square, the Galata Tower further on down toward the Golden Horn and the Sea of Marmara in the background.  Just a few of the countless things that make Istanbul one of my top five world cities.*

It's a confluence of civilization, continents and cultures in a breathtaking physical setting. For a kid from the American south, the sound of the call to prayer from all different directions at dusk is hopelessly exotic. Istanbul. What's not to like?

More photos from several trips to Istanbul and Turkey here, and more HDRs here on EarthPhotos.com.

* My top five list: Hong Kong, Istanbul, Paris, San Fransisco, Sydney. Your results may vary.
