Photographer's Note

Bykada'ya giderken vapurdan 蔒ktiğim bir fotoğraf. Vapur bir hayli kalabalık olduğu i蓾n fotoğraf 蔒kecek bir alan bulmak olduk蓷 zordu, ancak bu aralıktan 蔒kim yapabildim. Bu sebeple kadrajı dilediğim gibi tutamadım. Beğenmeniz dileğimle.

Kınalıada (meaning "Henna Island") is the nearest island to the European side of Istanbul (about an hour by ferry from Sirkeci). This therefore was the island most used as a place of exile in Byzantine times (the most notable exile being the former emperor Romanos IV Diogenes, after the Battle of Manzikert, 1071). This is one of the least forested islands, and the land has a reddish colour from the iron and copper that has been mined here.
