Shoe-Shine, Istanbul, originally uploaded by - di.

Don't forget to add your name to the comments section on this post you would like the chance to win two of my prints.

Meanwhile, this kind man allowed me to take more than a few photographs of him at work here in Istanbul.

I'm fallling in love with Istanbul through your photographs. Is this a paid assignment, or are you taking photos in the hope of selling them later (or both)?

...this kind man allowed you to..?

Oh Yes, of course, not only he, but everyone allow you to take photos how many you wish.

Never forget, because you are in Turkey!

Enjoy your discover and new meetups, sunshine again here:)

I'm just in from the Princes Islands in the Marmara Sea but I need to reply to comments, so here goes ... as another 300 photographs download.

Catherine, I'm so glad you're enjoying Istanbul. This is all about a book we're putting together with friends who live here in the city. The money will hopefully come later, presently where stocking our Istanbul photo library and preparing the first book project.

He seemed like a lovely guy and gestured to us to come over when he noticed us trying to work out which shoe-shine guy to ask to clean shoes for this photography session. He does have a lovely smile, doesn't he Tara.

Thank you, Nihal and yes, we're having the best time. Princes Islands today ... STUNNING weather beautiful photographs hopefully.

Ms V, you are wicked.
