I recently returned from a short trip to Istanbul. It’s a favourite city of mine and I was really looking forward to visiting the souks, and bazaars, drinking Turkish coffee in a street cafe, and taking in the grand sights of the Golden Horn in the warm spring sunshine. In the end, I didn’t have that much time, and the weather was cold and wet. It did mean, that there were lots of good reflections in the photos. I was trying out my recently purchased 56mm f/1.4 lens which is great for portraiture, but I wasn’t sure how good it would be for street photos. It turns out to deliver some pretty great shots. I also caught a few nice night shots of the mosques, and trams, and bridges, and towers. I hope you have a chance to have a watch and hopefully enjoy it.
