Turkish Bookshop, Paralympic Games and Graffitied Doors

August 1, 2012

Turkish Bookshop

I recently went to Turkey for a long weekend and while walking around in Istanbul I came across this charming bookshop. I loved the colours in the window display and even though I don’t read Turkish, I wanted to buy them all only for how great they looked.

Paralympic Games

Everyday when I open the papers I see yet another image of the incredible athletes competing in the Paralympics. What a strong reminder that one can achieve anything in life.

Graffitied Doors

I came across this photography shop walking around in Naples recently. It was closed and instead of a vitrine, it had this mural graffitied on its doors! It’s amusing and a great show of resourcefulness. I love it!
