Istanbul – Ankara in search of Ata Turk

Not so long ago I was in Turkey. Destination that I always wanted to visit but  have never found time since is sort of to close for a long destination trip and to far for the weekend trip. Now I have finally made it… One week in Istanbul and Ankara shooting different places and objects closely related with the founder of the modern Turkey – Ata Turk.
