Would you enjoy a complete view of Bosphorus and loads of fresh air? How about enjoying them while having your breakfast or sunbathing and even taking a shower if you start to feel hot? Well, now the terrace of Istanbul Eye offers all these facilities!
Recently, we have noticed that the terrace had a magnificient view but lacking something. It’s quite a wide one and totally in open air. But during the summers, it gets so hot that you can’t enjoy this view long enough. However we have installed some lovely things that will turn this experience to an unforgettable one for you :). There are two new deck chairs where you can sunbathe and a big umbrella when you want to stay in the shadow. In addition to these, we installed a simple shower unit for you to cool down without interrupting your pleasant mood. Certainly we took a video of it, too :) Also visit the Istanbul Eye pages for a more detailed information and other videos.
This last Tuesday (17th of July), we visited the Galata View for the video shooting! It’s one of the most wonderful apartments in Istanbul that has a magnificient view of the Marmara sea, Bosphorus and Golden Horn. I must admit the weather was extremely hot but we were lucky to open windows to get some fresh Bosphorus air in :)
I had a chance to try out the new tripod I had bought for the video cam, too. And yes, it works really good for me :). Funny but I felt like a pro during the shooting. Anyway, the apartment is quite a big one and I had to take several shots for each room. But when I was working with my video software today, I realized I could hardly crop out some parts and eventually the whole video was almost over 10 minutes! This has too many handicaps. First for viewers: A 3-5 minute video is considered to be more watchable. Then for background music: It’s almost impossible for me to find one 10-minute track for the background and I hate to put 2 different tracks and put over “fade-ins” and “fade-outs” to perform a mix. Just for the info; Background track in the first video is from Loreena McKennitt (Marco Polo) and in the second video is from Shantel (Inel Inel De Aur)
Long story short, I divided the video into two parts, each one introducing different rooms. Below are the youtube embeds for you to watch. Please also visit the apartment’s web pages to see its photos and other pages that might interest you. See Videos
