With our guide, we stopped in a restaurant by Hagia Sophia in Istanbul for lunch, and this woman was cooking lavash. The lavash in Istanbul is so delicious, more tender and tasty than what we buy here. I ate it everyday I was there. It’s what’s cooking in Istanbul.
I was photographing the fairy chimneys in Cappadocia, Turkey, when I turned to leave and noticed that Nature was presenting a high-key vignette. Clouds obliterated the sun, creating a white sky, which erased the horizon line against the chalky volcanic rock and formations. The group of tourists gave the image the subject matter it needed and I grabbed the shot.
Selfies are the new common denominator among tourists from across the globe. I am amused at the art involved in this modern phenomenon. I’ve seen the pouty model pose, the besties pose and group shots taken with camera phones on sticks. These two selfies at Rome’s Trevi Fountain are typical vacation pix that were likely immediately uploaded and sent around the world.
