Quite a grand entrance. You have a sense of importance as you enter. How old is the University?

Finally Internet (Because I can have Internet only the weekend and the public holidays), I can visit your blog. This weekend I present Martel in version black and white. I prefer the photographs in b&w and you?

My blog photographs on the town of Martel

Oya you should enter from that huge door and take some photos inside. Istanbul University is a great place to take photos. I am at the university every day. If you decide to come, I can take you in.

Oya said...

Burcu, I know. I have studied there too :) But I can not come at the week days. Maybe you can take some photos for me and I publish them here,or you can be my co-author. What do you think?

Burcu said...

This is a great offer! But there is a problem. I dont have a camera :) It seems like I have enough money this month (finally!) and I'm planning to buy one in a few weeks. Yet, I am not an experienced photographer. So here is my suggestion: I take a camera and take a few photos and publish them in my blog and if you like them, we talk again. What dou you think?

Oya said...

Burcu, I think that is a great idea:) I can't wait for it...Just let me know, when you are ready.
