I will include a caption under the photography just the time frame it was taken within, and the quantity of photographs it was selected from; I've also added brief explanation of why they were included.
Ironically enough these may not the best of the day - as I am now starting to see possible sets, and saving greater images for different posts that will follow. Hopefully however this will reflect 12 hours on the streets of this amazing city.

2. I love this mans disinterested look regardless of the women lingerie - this was shot from the hip
3. This will form part of a series about freight being moved around. These men were moving these boxes by hand up steep side streets.
4. Areas of Istanbul are defined by stores this was the tool and machinery zone.
5. Sales of private lottery tickets not just from small carts but a well arranged business.
6. Only 5 images - I think it was at this point I wanted food. I was trying to compose this graffiti, when this woman walked into shot. Moments later the car just out of shot to the right moved in. This was one of those poetic photographic moments where everything falls into place.
7. I had to include this as I found the visual pun difficult to resist, I mean I guess they have satellite right?
8. I took a long walk along the Bosporus sea, many people sit and eat small lunches. This day only a handful of people braved the cold wind.
9. Some what a reflective image. The way the statue looks over some refuge.
10. This has been included as it would represent the amount of stray animals. The Dogs are tagged and checked for rabies. However they sleep anywhere without a care for human traffic.
11. Only of Three as the man in frame insisted that he visited his shop. I then must have spend nearly an hour looking over carpets - experiencing the hard sell. I guess there was an exchange of sorts, his photograph taken for my time.
12. The light was failing I visited the 'Blue Mosque' you could photograph anything but people praying. The roof structure inside was amazing. I'll post image from this later, however for me this symbolized the end of my day. With a low angle I was able to highlight this couple, once again pure poetry for twelve hours work.
