While traveling last year I discovered this great thing called photography, and it really hooked me. I started to see my surroundings with new eyes as I developed a new dimension of looking at the world.

So I noticed the many colors around me and I got intrigued by water, light, ducks, birds, scenes, children and the cuddling waves of water. A whole new world opened up for me and my camera became a natural extension of my experience.

Little did I expect when I also started uploading my photos, but recently I got selected for a travel magazine and one of my Istanbul shots got actually published. Today I found the paper version (pdf, 17 mb) in my new mailbox and I can say this much: photos really do look better when printed. Yeah!
