So I just realized that I have failed to mention anything about the trip I took to Istanbul last October aside from just saying that I went. That’s a pretty stupid move on my part since it is one of the coolest cities I have ever visited, but I’ve been way hella busy, dudes.

 

One day I will get some more detailed posts up, but until that time comes, why don’t you head on over to Matador Trips to see the photo essay I had published called Istanbul through an iPhone lens. This is my favorite piece of published work on Matador because it was my first piece of published work on Matador and pretty much sums up what I did in 10 days with just a bit of lite reading – my kind of “reading”.

 

Also, I’m throwing in 10 more photos here that didn’t make the cut just for good measure. I was an iPHONEOGRAPHIC MACHINE while I was there which made narrowing down the shots to include in the essay pretty difficult. I easily have a hundred more. Good thing I got this blog rolling and they won’t remain hidden in the depths of my external hard drive forever…
