Photographer's Note



On top of the hill are Selimiye Barracks (Turkish: Selimiye Kışlası). Also known as Scutari Barracks, they are Turkish army barracks located in the skdar (Scutari) district on the Asian part of Istanbul, currently the headquarters of the 1st Army. The barracks were first built in 1800 by Sultan Selim III for the soldiers of the newly established Nizam-ı Cedid (literally "New Order") in the frame of the Ottoman military reform efforts.

During the Crimean War (1854-1856), the barracks were allocated to the British Army. After the troops left for the front, the barracks were converted into a temporary military hospital. Florence Nightingale, considered to be the founder of modern nursing, served at Selimiye with 37 volunteer nurses. The northwest tower of the barracks houses the Florence Nightingale Museum.

I was first going to crop off the lady taking a selfie on the right. Then I decided to leave her in, imagining her as the modern day incarnation of Ms. Nightingale.

Modern hemşireliğin kurucusu olarak kabul edilen Florence Nightingale 37 gnll hemşire ile Selimiye'de grev yaptı. Kışlanın kuzeybatı kulesi Florence Nightingale Mzesine ev sahipliği yapmaktadır.

Ben ilk nce sağda selfie eken bayaı kırpacaktım. Sonra onu Bayan Nightingalein gnmzdeki canlı rneği olarak hayal ederek bırakmaya karar verdim.
