Photographer's Note

Everyone might declare Istanbul the city of cats — black cats, white cats, calicos and Persians and tabbies without number. They sun themselves lazily in dry marble fountains and weave between the feet of coffee-shops drinking çay tea and strong coffee; they skitter nervously down the steep cobblestone streets of the Old City and perch atop the keystones of Constantine’s ancient citadel.
It is not hard to imagine the cats gathering together at night, after the street vendors and pickpockets and tourists have all gone to bed, sneaking into the Hagia Sophia and planning out the events of the next day underneath the giant gilded dome.
Here this one sitting on a funeral stone of a woman in a cemetery
How do I know that was a funeral stone of a woman?Because Mesut explained to me how to recognize them looking the motifs there ...flowers on one stone say about how many kids the woman had in her life

My experiments on/of light continues :)
This shot is dedicated to Lopshang
