Photographer's Note

This place on the Eminönü quay in central Istanbul has to be one of my favourite spots for taking photographs. This is my third picture on TE taken from almost the same place.
40 years ago I took this picture from an Istanbul that didn't look dramatically different but had an atmosphere that now belongs to the past.
I returned to the same place less than 5 months ago, when I captured this view.
And finally last month I saw this group of African women and children admiring the view of the Golden horn and the Galata heights.
