100'th Post

Being a member of the Daily City Photo family, changed a lot of things in my life...
I started to go out, browse the city ,
I photographed almost everything, and not only Ollie girl,
I see things from a different view now...
I visited all your blogs all over the world,
Felt in love with cities, that I did not know before,
More importantly, I made new friends ....
You have a friend in Istanbul now...

Oya, many many congratulations. I love the words you wrote and so agree. Taking photographs every day - or often - makes us open our eyes to everything (the beautiful and the not so beautiful) around us.

And you have a friend in Menton and Monte Carlo.

love Jilly x

Oya said...

Thanks, Jilly :) and Menton and Monte Carlo is what I am talking about:)

Its quite amazing how fast 100 milestone comes around - it is really exciting to have you join the DP since Turkey is one place i find very interesting from the political and historical perspective, and now i get to see it from a personal pictorial experience. You photos are a wonderful collection of various subjects that reflects very well on the beautiful people and place you live.

Mahalo and aloha!

Oya said...

Kala, thank you very much. It really amazes me to come to the 100'th post so fast. And I still feel, I have a loot of things to do, beatiful places and yummi foods to bring to you.... I'm lovin this:)

Abraham Lincoln said...

Wow. Double Wow. I really like your submission, Oya. Great and also your little commentary is very touching and I am so thankful I can count you and a lot of folks here at DPB as my friends too.

I am sure you have been there but I will thank you anyway. Thanks for visiting.

My Theme Day portrait is of the "Peashooter" and the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Hope you like flying.

Alice, thank you very much:) To make the collage, I used Picasa. It is very easy...

Kris and Stella Bella, thank you...

Kate said...

How clever of you to use this collage in this way to celebrate. I've used Picasa for smaller collages and will have to experiment with this kind, like yours. Turkey has been in the news today because of the disagreement re. the Presidential candidate. Interesting! I, too, am fascinating by your country and culture. Would love to visit as so many other would. You're on your way to another stellar 100 photos!

Chris & Deb said...

sorry we missed your actual milestone day...but belated congratulations from your friends in Minneapolis!

Oya said...

Kate, thank you. We have all kind of political disagreements lately. Will be solved hopefully...

Chris & Deb, thanks a lot my friend :)

anu said...

Congratulations Oya on your 100th post. Its been great to see Istanbul thru your eyes. And as you said, it's so true that being a part of the daily city photo family has changed our lives. Im more sensitive to things happening in my city now.
I'll be posting daily soon.
And Krrish is doing great. Getting naughtier everyday.

Oya said...

Thanks Anu, glad to hear that you and Krrish are doing ok...

Z said...

Slightly belated, but heartfelt congratulations from your friend in Villigen Switzerland. Well done, here's to many more 100s!

BuJ said...

WOW! The general has got 100 stripes :)

BRAVO AND MABROOK :)

Notice the Pasturma appeared and yummmmmmmmm

Oya said...

Buj, wouw, I gues I have been promoted from lieutenant to general with 100 stripes ? :))))

Bill said...

It is interesting how publishing a DP site changes you!

Kuanyin said...

Beautiful collage! Happy 100th! I'm working my way to 200 now, but since I received very few congrats on my 100th like you did, I hope to do something spectacular for my 200th!

Dina said...

That is such a lovely post, you have a friend here in Malta too.

BuJ said...

hehehe.. yep.. you deserve the promotion ages ago.. but i had to wait for your 100th to justify it to my colonel-general!

Oya Hanım, fotoğraflarınızı yeni keşfettim. İstanbul'u dünya insanına tanıtmak çok güzel bir duygu olsa gerek! Kolay gelsin, başarılar diliyorum...
