Taken from the roof of a building at the center of old town of İstanbul.
The seagull and the edge of the minarette; as if she is waiting for the next prayer time !!
Eminönünde bir han'ın tepesinden çektim bu kareyi.
Ezan zamanını bekler gibi bir hali var bu martının !!

I like seagulls, so I can't but like this image which is well thought and well done. Usually, seagulls are not waiting for prayers but for food, but maybe this time she thinks a little prayer may bring better food.

A charming and original composition, great time with that seagull appears to be contemplating the minaret, nice color contrast against the soft blue sky.
Superb sharpness both like good light, so beautiful on that day.
Have a nice day.

Nice juxtaposition, Mesut - you caught the gull at the right moment, and he really does appear to be casting an eye at the minaret here. Ready for a sundown prayer! A nice, somewhat minimalist shot in great light. Thanks!

Le Muezzin a un admirateur certainement attiré par son timbre de voix ou dans l'attente de la prière (je ne sais pas s'il s'est tourné du bon côté?). Un joli moment que tu as immortalisé là!

Hi Mesut, Well seen this seagulls with the slender minaret. Nice idea and excellent presentation. Very nice shot.

I was attracted by the cuteness of the pic. The seagull really looks as if it's looking up to the minaret !
Great composition with the contrast between the small bird and the tall tower.
If it's a prayer it's looking for, it has got the immensity of the beautiful sky sky for concentration :-)
Thanks for sharing.

Merhaba Mesut Bey,
rather minimalistic yet so powerful composition. Well seen! Maybe the seagull is sitting there all day long to wait for the call of the Muezzin ...
Very nice colors - the warm colors of the roof and the minaret in contrast to the bluish sky.
