One day in Istanbul: Life is about living the moment, photography makes those moments last forever.

“Don’t live in the world as if you were renting
Or here only for the summer,
But act as if it were your father’s house.
Believe in seeds, earth, the sea
But people above all.
Grieve for the withering branch,
The dying star,
And the hurt animal.
But feel for people above all.
Rejoice in all the earth’s blessings,
Darkness and light,
The four seasons,
But people above all.”

- Nazim Hikmet -
