Istanbul Trip, Day 8, Scene 11
Chris and I walked as far as Bebek that day. At Bebek Park, we saw this boat docked close to shore. They were making tea in the boat and selling it to people sitting on the park benches. I had never seen a tea-boat before! The title of this photo comes from the way tea sellers peddle their product: They call it "Rabbit Blood" to describe the deep red color tea is supposed to have.
Soon after this, Chris and I parted ways. He took a cab to the nearest metro station and I to my sister's house. We had had a good, productive afternoon walking quite a distance along the Bosphorus. And thus will I end my last full day in Istanbul.
İstanbul Seyahati, Gün 8, Sahne 11
Chris ve ben o gün Bebek'e kadar yürüdük. Bebek Park'ta, bu kıyıya yakın demirli tekneyi gördüm. Onlar teknede çay yapıp banklarda oturanlara satıyorlardı. Ben daha önce hiç bir çay teknesi görmemiştim! Bu fotoğrafın başlığı çay satıcıların ürünlerini ilan etme şeklinden geliyor: onlar çayın olması gereken koyu kırmızı rengi tanımlamak için "Tavşan Kanı" derler.
Kısa süre sonra, Chris ve benim yollarımız ayrıldı. O en yakın metro istasyonuna, ben ablamın evine birer taksiye bindik. Boğaz'da oldukça mesafeli bir yürüyüşle iyi, verimli bir öğleden sonra geçirmiştik. Ve Istanbul'da son tam günümü böylece sona erdireceğim.

Une prise de vue qui a toute sa place sur le site. "Apprendre par la photographie".
Une image bien présentée avec une note d'accompagnement intéressante.
Très bonne journée.

Nicely spotted and rendered. 10 out of 10 for the two men for spotting a niche in the market to sell tea to the people sat along the Bosphorus. The plank looks a bit precarious though.

A little bit dangerous for the man with in his hand the cup of tea, than about the narrow pier.

Nice composition good presentation,
Very well done, TFS.

Just seconds of fear, and he will be on land...
Nice taken the moment Murat, with good view across the Bosphoros. Beautiful blue water.
Have a successful journey, enjoy every minute of it.

you mean Chris Jules? That would be great! The title of your photo is so quaint and intriguing, it's justification in your note doesn't take away any of the allure of the scene. You took this picture with great timing, I like very much that we can see the two gentlemen's faces and expressions and that they are surrounded by so many interesting details, both in their boat and in the distance. You captured very sharp details and vibrant, bright colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

You certainly have an attention grabbing title, I was expecting something a bit gruesome to come out of the picture. Good to find out it was simply a tea boat. :) Quite an interesting daily life event, and a good capture to detail your notes. I like how you've narrated the scene and described the action...these have all been fun to join in along the journey. Enjoy the rest of the evening. Take it easy.

You're capturing well this scdene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see sellers who were making tea in the boat and selling it to customers. It seems to convenient trade and friendly for customer.
