Art is good for the soul

I admire houses with full of art pieces especially by paintings.

My new motive is collecting art pieces -of course as my budget allows. Mostly digital prints are now available signed by the artist.

In my wish list there are Mustafa Ayaz, Merve Turan, Hulya Özdemir and Zerrin Tekindor.

Helsinki II

Not like Copenhagen. Relation with water is weaker. Waterfront is not a designer’s work. 

Not many biycyles. cold weather made people walk around in malls like Forum and Stockmann. 

No street food. No delicious cuisine. 

More Eastern character. Between eastern and western, between Russia and Scandinavia. 

More design.

More order. More like a capital. 

Run

Watching Run on Netflix. 

Starring Lennie James (who previously played DCI Tony Gates in Line of Duty) and Olivia Colman ( who played Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller in Broadchurch. Two of my favorite tv series.

I like very much seeing urban scenes like social housing, trains and daily commuting, parks, backyards, interior designs in small apartments. This makes me feel real and much connected to the story snd the characters. 

And Run gives me that. 

Kuzguncuk

Kuzguncuk is a historical district located on the Asian side of Bosphorus. It was a place whene non-Muslim communities reside. There are churches and synagogue in the district.

But, I remember Kuzguncuk mostly with TV series like Perihan Abla and Ekmek Teknesi. Recently with openings of coffee shops, book stores, art galleries and gurme cafes the district turned out to a touristic attraction point more than ever.

Here are some photopgraphs, all by me. I liked you very much Kuzguncuk. I will come and visit you again and again.
