Snowed Out

Photograph by Olga Gamburg

“I was very fortunate to have witnessed a record-breaking snowstorm in Istanbul this past February,” writes Olga Gamburg of this image she captured in Turkey. “The city hasn't seen a beautiful white blanket like this in 28 years. After a three-hour journey on foot, because most of public transit and cabs stopped working, I was able to capture this perfect memory to take home with me.”
