While I waited to meet the group, I noticed the people setting up their
booths to sell seed, to feed the pigeons outside the Yeni Camii
We set off across the Galata Bridge to shoot the fishermen there
We came across this man selling live worms and shrimp for bait
This woman was selling buns, called poaça, to the hungry fishermen
Once on the other side of the bridge in Karaköy, I took a photo of
Farzana taking a photo of this simit seller
We visited a baklava bakery, and this waiter was eager to show us a
tray of baklava, decorated to show Barak Obama.
Here is a close-up, so you can see the work
that went into the decoration
We visited a Russian Othodox Church on the 5th floor of a building.
From the window, we could see other churches on the tops of buildings
We were surprised to see a Turkish Orthodox church.
I hadn't realised they existed until now.
In one narrow street, we came across this street dog that had
made itself comfortable on an armchair in the street
Ieva was good enough to model for us, so we could practise portrait shots...
...and jumping shots
We ended by walking along Istiklal, and back down to Karaköy
This musician was very accommodating,
and didn't mind us taking photgraphs of him
I certainly enjoyed my day, and I hope Gary did too. I think he had an excellent idea in contacting our group. It's something to consider when I am in foreign parts myself!
