Bosporus boatspotting

And now the bells of closure propagate their gloomy toll of doom through confused bandwiths of zeros and ones.

The summer is gone but in memories bound to fade,
Turkey no longer unrolls before me,
But slowly shrinks in the rear view mirror.
Voluntary Confusion In Istanbul is over.

Over, but for one last piece, easily my longest project or the most boring, depending on whether you like boats or not. Boatspotting was one of my favorite things on the vapur, and in the end, that’s what counts.

A tear is shed.
May our paths cross again!

About seboseba

I grew up in Essex, I happen to be French and I love Turkey (the country), especially Istanbul, among other places, for having lived there. I studied European policies and communication, graduating with a MA in both (yep, studying is still almost free in France). I wrote a research dissertation on employee recognition, the origins of virtue and corporate social responsibility. I love photography (hence the blogging), European training courses, forum theatre, jazz, blues, rock music, hiking in the mountains, skiing. If I could choose, I'd be a student all my life, but that doesn't pay much! You might have guessed by now, I'm looking for a job, but communication looks like a dead end these days so maybe I'll watch Midnight Cowboy again and get inspired...:-)
