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/

  1. I really like this photo. It is urban and then the mountains and sky in the background add another layer to the scene. Glad you did not fall out the window 🙂

  2. I hope you were hanging out of the first floor window ~~~~ : O
    What we won’t do to capture a shot….!!!!
    Well worth it, Gilly. It’s a great photo. I agree with Northern Narraives – the urben / the mountains –

  3. Beautiful even if a bit wonky Gilly 🙂 I remember falling in love with Bursa and regretting the fact that we had so little time there.

I would love to hear from you . . .
