Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

This photo is very wonky because I took it hanging out of a hotel window!

Bursa is on the old silk route in north west Turkey and was once the capital of the Ottoman Empire. It is one the the largest cities in the country and very  industrialised. At the same time it is a very green city with lots of parks and gardens. The surrounding area is forested and mountainous, the mountain in the background is Uludag, the ancient Mysian Olympus, about ten miles outside the city.

This is my entry to the challenge, if you would like to see some more visit http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2012/08/24/weekly-photo-challenge-urban/

Travel Theme: Silhouette

I love silhouettes but don’t really have a true one. This is as close as I can get. A picture of my friends taken in Kota Kinabalu looking towards Tunku Abdul Rahman Park islands.

There will be more to see over at Ailsa’s place, http://wheresmybackpack.com/2012/08/24/silhouette/ her own are superb.
