Istanbul is a juxtaposition of historic and modern. While traveling through the city, I soaked in colossal sites of mosques, palaces, and the Bosphorus. But the one thing I could not get enough of were the psychedelic lamps that glowed brightly in the Turkish street shops. Each time I look at this picture, I am mesmerized by the lamps’ intricacies and am transported back to my time in Istanbul.
