To emka: lettuce?

Thank you Malgo,
I can't identify all of what he was selling, but Cute Coriander Child would have been a much worse title.

To macjake: no drone

Thanks Craig,
I don't think it would be such a good idea to fly your drone right here, less than 100 meters from the scene of one of India's worst terror attacks. :eek:

To ChrisJ: own photos?

Thank you Chris, but where are your own photos? Nothing posted for almost a month. You used to be as regular as a clock.

Hello Malgo,
How strange. The Google map seemed to show it southeast of the Aliyev center. Well, I had no need to see it anyway.
No, Stockholm is quite cold now, and today the rain is pouring down....

To mcmtanyel: east or west

Thank you Murat,
The bridge goes in a southwestern-northeastern direction. Coming from Eminönü I was walking on the left side of the bridge towards Karaköy. So to be precise this was of course a...

To jean113: speak?

Thank you Jean,
I can't imagine that I actually "spoke" to them. I am not very good at Gujarati and I don't think they could speak any English. But smiles and gestures to show that you are not...

To emka: nothing to compare

Thank you Malgo,
Funny how I don't remember every photo I took decades earlier. :cool: I walked across this bridge several times in 2012. I took a lot of photos of amateur fishermen, but...

To macjake: old cars

Thanks Craig,
In the 70's Istanbul was like a museum of American cars from the 50's and 60's. I was quite disappointed to return in 1999, for the first time in 25 years, to find the cars were as...

Hello John,
Thank you again for your kind words and for adding this to your favourites. You should take care so it won't become a habit. :)

I love to see beautiful nature and wild animals, but I don't necessarily care to take photos of everything that is nice to watch. And I don't collect sights.

Hello John,
Thank you so much for your enthusiastic comments on this photo and for adding it to tour favourites.

China is a large country. There were many places I didn't see, but I enjoyed travelling through Inner Mongolia, Gansu, Qinghai and many other provinces. And there were no bullet trains in those days,...

To macjake: people shots

Thanks Craig,
Yes, I know you have taken a lot of photos of people, and very good ones too, especially from India. I just couldn't remember seeing any photos from inside museums. Maybe it's just my...

Hello Paul, thanks for your interesting comments.
I was only in Iran before the revolution, and such discreetly patterned chador (slightly less rigid than hijab) was the regular dress for women,...

To macjake: not much difference

Thanks Craig,
Judging from photos on the net, most likely more recent than mine, not much seems to have changed, except that there are more cars. Would you believe that? ;-)
It was a very safe...
