Train Ride, Istanbul

This Month in Photo of the Day: Traveler Contest Images

This shot was taken on a train ride, when the train stopped over the Galta Bridge, the bridge that split Istanbul city from the Western, more liberal part, to the more traditional part. Now, when all the Muslim world is rocking, I think this photo is more relevant than ever.
