I’m going to apologize in advance if the Istanbul photos have become tired and so last season. It’s just that after several somewhat untimely entries, there are still so many images I want to share. Besides being a food mecca, Istanbul is easily one of my favorite cities to photograph. I don’t think there needs to be any more explanation, I’ll just let the photos and captions tell the story this time.
the kitsch that is the Grand Bazaar
tavla or backgammon, played everywhere in Turkey
navigating our way through a maze of narrow streets in search of the Egyptian Bazaar
Turkish delights at the Egyptian Bazaar
beautiful, overrated, and expensive Pandeli restaurant
"do not feed the pigeons"
55F and showers expected
backside; midye dolmasi (stuffed mussels); simit vendor (sesame bread); catch of the day
the beautiful, untouristed Beşiktaş fish market
on the Bosphorus
David & Goliath
