One of the absolutely stunning things about Istanbul ...

are the extremes.

You can go from ancient to post-modern architecture in Istanbul in moments, sometimes they stand next to each other.

So it was, over in Eminonu, that I moved from photographing the water-filled jars of leeches for sale to these cute and fluffy small ducklings.

It's a city of extremes and all the more beautiful for it.
