Well, here ya go! :)

"Istanbul's impossibly colorful architecture"

"Over the past year, 32-year-old architect Yener Torun has been seeking out and photographing minimalist buildings around Istanbul. ‘Unfortunately there aren’t a lot of buildings like these in Turkey,’ he says. ‘So I spend most of my spare time finding them – it’s like a treasure hunt.’ He posts his pictures on Instagram, where he has attracted more than 36,000 followers. ‘Just think of the Istanbul photos you have seen before: grand mosques, old streets, seagulls over the Bosphorus. I show a completely different side. Even long-term residents can’t believe these pics were taken in the city they live in'."

Those are great! Thanks for sharing. I lived in İstanbul for four years but never paid attention to these, what a shame.

I was only in Istanbul for three days and didn't see nearly enough. :) I can't wait to go again some day! I love how this photography lets you something familiar with a new eye. Thank you for your kindness! :)
