Faces of Istanbul, Turkey | Part II

Posted on 17th January 2013 in Street Photography

This is the second installment of Faces of Turkey (Part I is here if you missed it).

I managed to spend a little time on Galata Kpr. and catch an absolutely stunning sunset. This is a very famous bridge where many fisherman gather every day to fish off of, which is then followed by assorted snack sales men and women, followed closely by the tourists all getting their photographs taken and.. well, you’ll see.

One of my most memorable moments is catching the two kids getting bored at their little sidewalk shop and the younger brother had covered his brothers hairy leg with toothpics stuffed into them. He didn’t want me to take a photograph of it, for some reason, and put his hand down to try and stop me from taking it, you can see his younger brother putting his hands up as if to say to his brother “don’t mess it up!” after he had spent a good time stuffing them in there. I laughed at the two of them, and they laughed back.

One of the last photographs on this post is of the road Sıraselviler Caddesi, which heads fairly straight to Galata Kpr. I spent a lot of time walking along this road, as it lead to most places I was going. It is one of the busier streets around, the photograph I have shown is not in it’s busiest time. The bazaar was busier (which I captured in Part I).
