Topkapı Palace, by Zahraa Al Hassani

There’s nothing funnier than a situation when a photographer is about to click the camera shutter and bunch of people come into his way, standing in front of his camera and start chit-chatting. I waited around 20 mins to get this shot done in Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. It’s a very beautiful and large place which was the primary residence of the Ottoman Sultans for approximately 400 years, this photograph shows his living room within the palace.
