Cruising slowly along the Bosphorus in Istanbul, between history and modernity.

For The Alphabet Site

The original Ortaköy Mosque was built in the 18th century.
The current mosque, which was erected in its place, was ordered by the Ottoman sultan Abdülmecid and built between 1854 and 1856.

It is a beautiful picture if, I can focus on the Mosque and ignore those 'High-Rise buildings.
Here, regretfully, the powerful dragon of modernity does overcome the beauty of the history.

Thanks aidan. Istanbul is a constant blending of history and modernity, sometimes less striking than here. In general I found this city fascinating for all it shows of the past civilizations and architectures.
