Heritage Photo Contest – The Lucky Ten!

About a week and a half ago, I launched a Heritage Photo Contest in my blog. It was launched as part of a post describing my experience using the GPSmyCity self-guided city walk app. GPSmyCity apps will be given to ten (10) participants who submit interesting heritage photos from their travels [CONTEST IS CLOSED]

Well, it’s time to reveal those 10 interesting heritage photos, and the individuals behind the lens who took the photos 🙂

10. The Blue Mosque, Istanbul, Turkey

  1. Great post and great collection of sites and photos. All brilliant, the Menara Kudus (Kudus Tower Mosque), Central Java, Indonesia looks as if I could walk right into the shot.

  2. Thanks for featuring Menara Kudus here Kat, it is one of the heritage which captured the harmonization of some religions in Java. I hope you can visit it someday.

    Also, congratulation to the other winners 🙂

    1. You’re welcome! I love the collection featured, different from the usual heritage photos that we often associate with the city/country.
