Istanbul: Where East Meets West

I have now re-organised and re-edited my previous Istanbul photo collection and am posting them in this newly created Istanbul thread.
I loved Istanbul, having wanted to visit for many years, and having been inspired by Orhan Pamuk’s beautifully, poetic memoir ‘Istanbul: Memories and the City’. I could easily imagine myself living there for a year or two, and certainly hope to return one day.

Gorgeous, Jane! Your pictures make me feel Istanbul with all my senses.

Every pic a pleasure - scrolling down and getting the colourful, vibrant
impressions now was like enjoying a delicious glass of wine sip by sip.

I'm looking forward what is still to come!

Really get a great sense of the city in these pics, particularly as you've captured everyday life in such a vivid manner.

Gorgeous set of pictures! Probably one of your best collections ever. Well worth to see them back.

Superb again!

Do I see right, Jane - there is a man who sells food for feeding pigeons?!
Happy Turks - here in Vienna we are punished when caught at feeding pigeons.

Many favourites, Jane - but let me pick out this, it made me smile.

Yes, Yansa! That little bird is free to come and go as it pleases....very impressive!
I used to keep budgies - and several did escape eventually.
