Daily Inspiration Bag Giveaway #26

These are some photos I took in Istanbul in 2014, before some of the craziness that’s happening now.
The first is in the Spice Bazaar, on a typically busy day with throngs of people crowding the aisles to buy spices from frenetic stall keepers.
The second is of one of the many kids busking on the streets of the city – this one as curious about me as I was of him.
The third shows some of the colorful handmade lamps in a local shop that reflect the rich, vibrant and fascinating culture of Istanbul.
It isn’t easy to make good use of wide angle lenses, especially for people photos. Here the wide only not only works, but makes sense…Nicely done!
Nice! Particularly like the shot of the kid.
In the first pic, is the vendor throwing something at you?
Hi Huss – actually, he was throwing / passing it to his assistant on my left. You can see the tip of the assistant’s hand towards the bottom left of the frame.
