Galata Bridge connects Golden Horn (where Equinox docked) and Istanbul’s Old Town peninsula. There is a convenient tramway. But walking is the best way to experience the lively actions taking by Istanbul folks. Look that chorus line of fishing rods. People (all men young and old) try to catch fish for fun or for extra income.

I heard before that on the Galata Bridge you can see many fishermen attempting to catch something. But never before I've seen such a colourful collection of fishing rods. It looks like someone has opened a shop there :)
This is a splendid colourful picture giving us also a nice view of the shore with the mosques, just over the railing of the bridge.
Wonderful sky too.
Best regards, Paul

Great capture, a great place to watch the world go by,
Galata bridge is the backbone of Istanbul.
Did you try the fish sandwich from the floating fast food boats.? A great City.

Great shot Tiffany of this pastime on the famous bridge.Looks as if someone is making some money by renting or selling these rods, various accessories, bait and the stools.I presume that is the Suleymanyie mosque in the distance.A colourful version of a colourful part of Istanbul. Best wishes. Klaudio.

you are presenting a colorful impression of this well known bridge. A very successful composition where the busy angler also plays an important role and a very good perspective. My compliments!

This is a unique portrait of a fine city with colorful rods laid up nicely in the foreground. The signature view of Istanbul is well captured in the background.

Colorfull many fishing rods, waiting for the best time for fishing. I guess it's around evening's.
Nicely combined the known monument in Istanbul on far side, with town buildings along the strait.
Favorable light and fine sharp details.
