Istanbul - Street III

like the images posted yesterday, i lke this one because it tells a story about the city, which's mentality is somewhere caught in between traditionalism and modernity.

This one tells something about the family ties in Turkey.

And this one is simply a nice portrait. I was shooting inside a mosque, then this young woman showed up. She clearly seemed to be bored by the praying of her mother and asked me what i was after. I told her i was a photographer, she later told me she was working for the police in Istanbul but had a day off. We had a nice chat, I asked for an image with her and her mother, she agreed. I wonder if i gave her a b.card (and i still wonder if she wanted me out of the mosque or out for a coffee...)

have fun, flo.
