Photographer's Note

I guess from the title you understood that the feeling i wanted to put forward with that shot of the only man lost in thoughts in front of a single building under a sole cloud sky partially hidden by a single tower was the concept of many. Hmmh no sorry, I do it again : one.

That's Soliman's mosque in Istanbul, peacefulness and quietness reigns. I guess this was the mood I needed to find to change my mind a few minutes after I almost got to hands with the usual taxi driver who tried to crook me (for the third time, must admit...) with the famous istanbuli bank note switch. You hand him a 5million note waiting for money back, he takes it but he has a 500.000 note of same color in his hand and tries to convince you that was the sameller note you gave him : first time I was sorry, second time perplex, third angry.
(Note to travelers in Istanbul : when your taxi does not want to leave you in front of a monument entrance -where the police is standing- arguing that he has to take another road to come back, you can start smelling bullshit and problems).
