Outstanding pic.

Turkey has fish, who woulda thunk.

spacebar: Thak you :D

km: oh Turkey has lots of fish!! There's the black sea, the Aegean and the Mediterranean... miles and miles of coastline. In Istanbul in particular people eat a lot of fish - and they fish everywhere too! You will always see lines of people fishing.
Of course, there's loads of kebaps too :)

Not a pretty sight for a vegetarian! Couldn't you post some pix of the dervishes instead? Live ones, I mean :-)

Turkey Has Fish.

Scout, that's a great album title. Now go write some tunes.

Szerelem said...

scout: thanks :) I agree with km about the album title and you writing tunes!

ghost: Well I have posted dervishes!!! It's not my fault you were MIA.

beautiful! I especially liked the pigeons from the b-w-series. and the dervishes, yes!

GhostOfTomJoad said...

Wow! Now those are brilliant pix...and of living things too :-)

And, unlike TR, who says there that he prefers your colour pix, I think the B/W are wonderful. Maybe Istanbul has something to do with it but your pix also give the place a sense of another time.

Szerelem said...

Thank you to both of you :)

Ghost - I take little credit. It is all Istanbul. God I love that city.
