Whenever I visit a new country I try to find where the street markets are. There are so many interesting people there – ordinary people going about their normal daily business. So it was in Istanbul. While the tourists thronged the Istiklal Caddesi along with the young and glamorous, we found the street markets away from the main drag.
Fruit and vegetable stalls and sellers are among my favorite subjects; colorful characters selling colorful produce.
Meanwhile, back in Istiklal Caddesi we found this chestnut seller with his cart getting ready for a busy evening.
