Photographer's Note

Possibly, apart from the Hagia Sophia and the Mosques, one of the most photographed features of Istanbul is the small army of fisher folk who gather daily on the Galata Bridge. Day and night these intrepid folk are found hauling in their catch of tiny sliver fish and putting them into containers for home use or sale.....I'm not sure I would be consciously choosing to eat fish from this polluted waterway personally despite the attempts to make it cleaner!

This was taken as our TE meeting progressed to the Galata Tower as the evening sun left a warm glow on the fisher's faces.
