Photographer's Note

A capture I've made in Sile - İstanbul.
This boy was sitting on the road side, waiting his parents and under him one of the many thousands of stray cats of İstanbul und full protection.

Istanbul is a heaven for unattended stray cats and dogs and on many parts of the city you can see -often elderly- many woman, feding thos cats and dogs.

Also historically Istanbul had a long tradition in this respect.
Therefore almost all public fountains, built during the Ottoman empire had special parst, allways full with water, for stray cats and dogs.
