Photo Club -- Istanbul
I have joined the Photography Club here in Istanbul. I have really enjoyed these ladies and all they have taught me.
Each month we have a couple of "Challenges" -- for the first couple of weeks of November, we were to look for "framing".
While Terry and I were walking around SultanAhmet he noticed this couple sitting in the garden next to the Blue Mosque. Before I could get into position for the shot -- they stopped. I was disappointed, then I caught the young man's eye and motioned for him to kiss her again. He was more than willing to accommodate me . . .
Sometime later, I saw this couple walking under the tracks . . . arm in arm.
The next day. . . after breakfast in the Nisantasi, Terry and I walked down the hill. We were heading for the palace of the Last Sultan -- Dolmabachce Palace. I was thinking that it would be something that Terry would enjoy. When we got there, the line was wrapped around the corner. As we walked toward Ortakoy, I was looking for opportunities to frame a shot. This was at the Imperial Gate.
Thanks for stopping by . . . Sheryl
