Photographer's Note

Today's uploads will be a break from Topkapı Palace and will display views its restaurant's terrace. They will also serve as close-ups of some landmarks from the panorama of my previous upload.

This is a view of the Küçük Çamlıca Tower, a telecommunications tower with observation decks and restaurants in Küçük Çamlıca, right above Üsküdar (Scurti). According to Wikipedia, "with an total height of 587 meters above sea level, it carries the title of the highest structure in Istanbul and in Europe.

The tower [was] designed by Melike Altınışık Architects (MAA) firm, founded by Melike Altınışık. The building itself is a single piece structure, which was inspired by the Tulip flower; a symbol for the Turks during the Ottoman period. The main axis of the tower includes the roots and feeder stem of the tulip. The viewing terrace and restaurant floors resemble a tulip bud that hasn't bloomed yet."
