Recently I was able to visit the magnificent city of Istanbul for the second time. I actually found it somewhat difficult to photograph it this time around. Part of it was the heat and humidity. The thought of lugging my camera bag around on my back did not excite me at all. Even when I did have my camera with me, it felt like too much work to take it out of the bag! 🙂 And then, this being my second visit to the city, I had pictures of all the iconic places already and just didn’t feel like taking pictures of the same things all over again. So….what to do??
I decided to take a more “close up” approach to the city. I shot details and close up shots of things that interested me and caught my eye. It was kind of fun! So here are some of my shots of Istanbul…close up.
