Fuji'ing in Europe- Part 1: Istanbul.

I wont be lying if I say I prefer travelling with the Fuji system more than the heavy DSLRs. Earlier this year, carried the Fuji X100s to India, but this time I wanted to try the Fuji X-E2 which I used mostly Zeiss 12 f/2.8 and the much under-rated but fantastic Fujinon 18 f/2.
Waiting for our early morning/dawn flight, witnessed few passengers sleeping like this.

A great example of how discreet the camera is, persomally love this photograph of the child beimg amused by being able to watch movies even in flight.

As we approached Istanbul,Turkey.

Istanbul Airport.
For the very first time of our life, we experienced power cut in a foreign hotel, that too once we checked in.

The view from the hotel wimdow made up for the power shortage, we were right beside the majestic blue mosque.

The famous bridge om Bosphorus River.

Turkey has become a tourist hotspot and the boat cruise is extremely popular.

Wondering the streets of Istanbul was a treat, you never knew what would lie next.

Travelling in a new city means a lot of walking.

The Fuji 18 f/2 is perfect for this kind of shots from the hip.
We visited the bosphorus seaside in the evening & it was pretty crowded.
