Istanbul-114.jpg

F 1.7 | 1/30 | ISO 800

One of my many, many favorite moments in Istanbul was going out for a walk late on a Sunday night to find an authentic döner kebap, when we happened upon a guy being handed stuffed mussels one after another at the top of the metro station escalator. We couldn’t resist figuring out what was going on, as he was hoovering them down at a quick rate. It took all of a millisecond to understand what was going on when I tried one myself. This photo perfectly encapsulates the attitude of the Turkish people I met: provide for you a new experience, willingly pose for a photo, and smile knowing that they have something special going on in that ancient city.
