Old building in Istanbul

Taken in the summer of 2008 in Istanbul. I wouldn’t want to catch an earthquake in there…

It is an extraordinary building, among all the new buildings of Istanbul…it gives you shivers.

In here, my great-grandmother had died and when I climbed the first step of the stair I suddenly saw her white curly hair and heard the question: why the hell don’t you leave me alone in here – in Istanbul – where I built this wooden house for me – in the last century. And it escaped from all the fires – while I died burnt by my inner fire.
