Istanbul Trip, Day 3, Scene 8
Our walk has brought us to Karakoy. This is a view of the Galata Bridge from west of the Karakoy ferry terminal. It is apparently the fifth bridge at this location. We walked halfway on the lower floor on this side of the bridge, crossed to the other side and walked back on the upper deck.
Karaköyden Galata Köprüsü
İstanbul Seyahati, Gün 3, Sahne 8
Yürüyüşümüz bizi Karaköye getirdi. Bu Karaköy vapur iskelesinin batısından Galata Köprüsü'nün bir görünümüdür. Bu anlaşılan aynı konumdaki beşinci köprüdür. Biz, köprünün bu tarafında alt katta yarısına kadar yürüdük, diğer tarafa geçtik ve üst kattan geri yürüdük.

I find it interesting to see so many people fishing from the bridge.

Given the conditions, rain and cloud, you have made the most of what light there was. Taken at a good angle giving depth leading to the centre. This is a place that I never cease to enjoy photos of. The angler stood on parapet looks a bit precarious. This is one half of one side of the bridge and there must be 70 to 80 rods. So there could be over 300 rods in all. It must be a prolific breeding ground as they bring out thousands of fish daily.
Happy memories of my stay in Istanbul.
Best Regards Arnie.

The presence of the people is adding life to the scene. The length of the bridge is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details, the colors of the bridge and of the shops. The cloudy sky is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.

Again a view about the big city Istanbul with a second bridge with there beneath the shops.
Also the colours make these picture very attractive.
Excellent daily life picture with the people in foreground.
A nice composition also a lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

I had seen some different perspective of this bridge, Murat, here on TE, and it looks as those anglers never go home... always a multi-rods forest is an unseparatable psrt.
Weather was not so favorable, yet managed to give a fine view along.

a very fascinating view! The parallel lines from the bridges make a good contrast against the warm illumination between. The many anglers along the upper bridge add a very good part of the scene. Do they all catch anything?

oh I know this one:)I was there last week and took quite similar shot of this beautiful bridge.
Here I like your presentation not only because so many fishermens,but also because of the illuminated signs,which create more lively and vibrant atmosphere of the scene.
Have a nice day

I was initially pulled into this image for the strong diagonal across the frame, but am now more interested in the plethora of fishing lines. Did you now have fish on the mind as a result of my last picture, still hungry despite having just eaten? :)
We've seen many a photo of the throngs of people fishing from the bridge, but this is a new viewpoint for me, and I love the original take on the subject. Oh yeah, the bridge also makes for strong material...haha, literally and figuratively. Enjoy your evening. Take good care.

My goodness all these fishermen on this bridge, a popular spot hey.I like the lone one on the far end in front of the bill board, he is trying a different spot.
Nice one, interesting two tiered bridge, Tfs,

I like the repetition of the fishing rods and the hopeful anglers along the top of the bridge. The low shooting angle has allowed us to see the row of shops which most people going across the bridge by tram or car never see. Excellent color bursts added by the bright saturated neon. Have a great Sunday!

this is a well known place but we usually see it from another perspective. Your composition is very interesting because it shows us the world below the upper deck and because it has cut off the sea! The spectacle of so many fishing rods extending hopefully above the railing and the anglers defying the rain and the cold, is amazing and a little amusing without the sea in the frame:) The warm lights bring a striking contrast to the utterly moody scenery. Congratulations and thank you!
I hope that the weather is still improving and that you have the chance to spend much time outdoors now!
All the best, have a great day,

the place looks something surreal with this mix of fishers and shops.interesting effects of light and personages.
