Dolmabahçe Revisited

Dolmabahçe is the palace on the eastern side of the Bosphorous.
The garden is amazing, I could go again and again

I walked down from Taksim square
Cute guard with podium
Dolmabahçe is basically the Dubai of 18th century, the Sultans were all hiring foreign architects to make it all fabulous and non-Ottoman, in a Ottoman way of course

Minaret under repair
the palm tree is friends with elegance
A clock thinks about becoming a building,
maybe sometime
trees behind a wall
a wall that looks like its not there

a door leading to the sea,
and one more
(I've blogged this before but I cant get enough)
