"amazingly beautiful..."

TIME send this to my email,32187,2021913,00.html
and I wanna share
Superb photos taken on New York
cultured and diversity
the building was during revolution+industrial
so, you can easily spot on the wrought iron features on facades
which is almost similar that i can found along Istiklal Cadesi & Asmali Mescit - Taksim Areas

Wish some of the pixs just let them be in original B&W
It gives more soul to New York
another top place on mylist!


"a jolly-good-farewell..."

"am not good when it comes to say goodbye, yet am having so much fun yesterday, was the first batch of our team taking flight and high roads back home. as i've decided to left my others part "MR. D80" @ home (note: i want to be part of the party as always am behind camera) i think am not really good infront of camera. apologies for my"finger" that wasnt intended to be caught on cam;op (due respect to mommy's wishes, the pix has been removed. love u mommy, promise will behave like a classy woman;o)

Sompol delivered the most memorable "drunken speech" ever. he's struggling all the way.
 in the end all he wants to say; that he loves me but he likes boys!

Neil keep on worrying about he drank too much and his lovely wife will be pretty upset with him.
yet he keeps on fill in his glass!lol

"Blue and me..."

Sea of Marmara from the ruins of Bucoleon Palace
Blue is your colour,
It's your eyes,
and in your smiles,
resembling sky,
overwhelming the universe,
too rich to be ignored,
I am,
a peasant,
neither too brilliant as you want,
nor too attractive as you wish,
too poor to be noticed,
Heart and love,
are my only possessions,
to proffer you,
as a gift of life.

"potrait of Istanbul"

 "scaring the world outside my comfort zone, i've decided to explore ~ john mayer"

"the only pix of me taken in Istanbul, at one of the thousands cafe there. Pix was taken by a swedish gay couple that i'd lunch with. they're really nice couple who's stayed few blocks away from my hotel and we keep on bump into each other. to respect their privacy, the identity shall be anonymous.
(note: for all those "lonely planet traveller", is advisable to form bonding with gays. A) there's no sexual intentions; B) they're fun to be with and C) they're just fucking fun & hillarious)

and to share my secret while traveling, as they've asked me
"girl, you're petite and very small, but walk very fast while carrying heavy bags of cam & tripod everywhere and we saw you're the last one back in hotel and the first one leaving early morning (note: Istanbul is late-wake up city, most of people's activity only commence @ around 9 to 9.30am), what kinda drugs you're taken"
so, the secret; my chocolate+ginger energy bar and i keep on thinking about Brad Pitt in Troy, that's what keep me going!

thank you to all my friends and fellow bloggers, enjoy my pixs. and am promise to be back with some of sketches
I drew in Istanbul. Be patience.

"dear Istanbul..."

" how do we say goodbye,
should we laugh,
should we cry,
simply smile,
i promise,
to carry you with me,
i will,
carry you in my heart"

" Istanbul is one of the top places on my list to be visited. and am glad, I've made it.
altho, i do not have the time that i wish i have, trying my best to reach them all. and the most important, I've appreciated my life greater than before. the poem, I wrote while am at Maiden Tower when my cam battery went flat out. Tho i miss out taking pixs. of the most beautiful scenery of Istanbul's city landscape @ 360d , yet it gives me enough room for scopes of imagination. therefore, be thankful, always."

"street buildings...Istanbul's architecture"

"whenever you want to find out something, plunge straight in~ Paulo Coelho"

"I've doubt of how safe this city will be at late nite. as in dubai, am always prefer to walk alone and captured some shots when the city is sleeping. And as trusted on the same someone's advise and he, who'd confirmed it is very safe, I brave myself walking from noon till late nite to capture how Istanbul looks like when it's quiet.
And what I've found, the street buildings came alive. this, so much better than dubai, even the weather.
It is very calm. I've no directions, just follow my heart."

"street arts...Istanbul's scene"

"why you need to try hard to fit in, when you are born to stand out~ a quote"

"some work of arts in mescit that i came cross"

" arent be bored anymore while parking your car"

"these cool graffiti found along the railway track behind the ruins of bucoleon palace"

"this what i've found in some of the residential areas when I was roaming around without direction,
i've no ideas where is this place"

"a political incorrect along small street between Istiklal, it's the anger shown towards some of german's community's got to do with "their-past-ancestral" historical sufferring and pains, no hard feelings for my germany's friends, i love you guys as much as you love me :O)"
