Photographer's Note

Approximately 45.000 ships per year pass through the Bosphorus. By year 2000, the number of shipwrecks in the Bosphorus was counted to be 23, most of them having sunk due to bad weather conditions. Selin-S was one of them, which was lying still on the seashore. She sank on 29.12.1999 also because of bad weather. She weighed 4289 grosstons, and was empty while she sank. She had already become a sightseeing point, attracting lots of people, even tourists. Sometimes environmentalists protested against her, but municipality was mute, with no attempt to carry her away. At last, they chopped her into pieces and carried her away last year. She may now be serving us as razor blades.
