Gozleme, Istanbul


making gozleme, Istanbul, originally uploaded by - di.

I love gozleme, and we had breakfast at the organic market, here in the city of Istanbul, this morning.

This woman was so very kind to this yeni zelanda and the camera she was toting ...

The colours at the market were so complimentary to people photography, Van and the woman just seemed like a beautiful soul.

Hey, thanks Barbara. I just adored her and thanked her profusely for allowing me to photograph her.

I think I have a body language thing that works out to be something like a golden labrador puppy and a small child wanting sweets off a favourite person, when I'm asking permission to take photographs, Tara :)

Maybe surprising to you, but it is our very typical characteristics. In other words, Turkish people in general are a-kind-of warm hearted and mature. Our hospitality over the world is always appreciated.
Your happiness is not a new thing to me, enjoy:) Because we are very very very different than Europe or any other part of this world.

Just lovely. I had to look gozleme up since I'd never heard of it, but I am now going to try my hand at this. Sounds delicious! I'm so glad you're writing about your trip.

RD, I'm full to overflowing with stories and photographs :) We were on the road taking photographs for 12 hours today ... eating our way around Asia along the way. So very very satisfying. Let me know how the gozleme goes.

No surprises, Nihal. I lived here in Istanbul for 2 years and I enjoyed so much Turkish hospitality. I only left for my Belgian, otherwise I'm sure I would still be living here :)
