Photographer's Note

This is certainly not an award winning photograph, but its one that brings back some fond memories in Turkey.

Balat was a part Istanbul that I wanted to see more than any other area of the city. Its crusted walls, its crusted buildings, colorful homes, twisting and turning narrow streets...what more could you ask for!

A big thanks goes out to Deniz for showing us around. As i've mentioned in my first note from Istanbul, if it were not for Deniz, Tosca and I would STILL be trying to find our way out of this jungle :)

As for the photo, I really liked the expression on the face of the father in the bg. And if you're wondering why the girl isn't looking directly at me, its simply because she's looking directly at Tosca. Clearly I need to 'get in there' quicker, I guess i'm more shy and I arrive at the scene like a vulture, picking up the scraps left behind haha

Tosca had already placed herself directly infront of the girl, so by looking at the photo you'd think I was more interested in capturing the toy car lol

anyways, I hope you like this family scene in Balat as much as I do.
