The Bosphorus, Istanbul. June, 2007

I love to take pictures of people taking pictures. In this case, people taking pictures of me. Here’s my friend Nick on board the private boat run by the late Korfez restaurant that transported diners from the European part of the city to the Asian side, a bit north of downtown Istanbul under the shadow of the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge. You can just see Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror’s 15th-century fortress of Rumeli Hisarı on the coast in the background. A wonderful day out of the touristed areas, a great lunch, a sleepy ride back into town...plus a stop for baklava at Güllüoğlu once we got back.
