Contributor and pilot Cemsaner created this beautiful drone video of modern Istanbul, the stunning city on the Straits of Bosphorus.  Once known as Constantinople, Istanbul has served as an inspiration to artists for many centuries.  In the present day, one of the leading lights of Turkey's creative class is Nobel Laureate Orhan Pamuk.  His 1990 novel Black Book memorably portrays the city, and his semi-autobiographical piece Istanbul: Memories and the City is a series of essays about modern Constantinople.
