The Castle By The Sea

This photo of a grand castle and exhibition place in Turkey shows how far man has come, and is a strong reminder of the abilities we possess that enable us to create such grand structures on water. Especially since it is located on the The Bosphorus Strait, connecting the Black Sea with the Sea of Marmara, it is a symbol of unity, in itself owing to the collective efforts of humans, and because of it's important location.
