Photo and caption by marcello yamamoto

This photo was taken under the Galata Bridge in Istambul. Lots of restaurants are located there and specially this one took my attention because the vivid colors of its furniture and of course , the reflex of the mosque inside the round frame. A harmonic combination of both, contemporary and secular Turkey.

Location: Istambul, Turkey
