Istanbul, Türkiye

One of the cities I really want to go back to is Istanbul. I met some friends,  two lovely ladies, Güler and Esen, I had made through the internet for the first time in person. We became friends in real life as well. Evrim, my friend who is a teacher of English in the Black Sea region, had come with us to Istanbul for a few days. I met with her brother, his girlfriend and a few friends and also with Esen's family. I also met Güler's teacher of English, Roger: an Englishman who lives in Istanbul. We went to a teagarden several times, smoking a waterpipe while sipping apple tea, eating simit (kind of bread) and chatting. What more can one want.
All my Turkey shots are dedicated to all the lovely people I met in Turkey. I will carry all those moments, the country and the people in my heart forever. 

Çok teşekkür ederim.

About the shots: Eminönü is an area that really comes to live at night with all the food stalls where they sell traditionally prepared fish.

Happy 2010. A frosty start.

I took a little break from posting on my blog. I was still posting but mainly event photos on Facebook.
Time to make a fresh start (pun intended) in 2010. We had some lovely frosty mornings and last Saturday, I went outside and just took a few photos.
For those of you who are wondering about some of the shots. Well the clothes pegs are obvious, then there is a shot of light falling on part of a iced up spiders web through the gap of a fence and there is one of an iced up drop on a spiders web, well, what's left of the web anyway. All the shots were taken outside of my house.
