Istanbul in Black and White

It’s almost a crime to photograph Istanbul without color…almost.

There’s still something so timeless and effervescent about this glorious city, in all its history and grandeur.  The colors of the Turkish capital are really something, but taking them away allows the eye to focus on what perhaps is even more unique and beautiful about the city.

When it comes to Istanbul, it’s all the details.  See for yourself…

  1. Very nice! I have yet to make it to Turkey, but it is on my list!

    • That’s funny! Turkey was never on my list, but it ended up being one of my favorite countries. I believe it’s highly underrated!

  2. I love it even if I see it in black and white. What more if I see it in person and alive with colors…Im sure Im gonna like it even better! Nice photos!

    • Hey Vanessa! Thank you! Yes, this is a city it’s hard to do justice with in black and white. The colors and the people are the best parts. Excited for you to see it with your own eyes!

  3. Elizabeth, Istanbul is one of my favorite cities in the world…I love your B&W gallery!

    • Thank you, Corinne! It’s a fun way to see the cities we all photograph so often a little bit differently. What city do you think I should do next?
