Another week, another challenge. I decided to take the easy route and pick from my Turkish photos, this time from my first visit when I travelled with my eldest son. My first photo shows a solitary woman approaching a tomb in the Eyup district of Istanbul.
Here are a few photos of my son on his own. He was the youngest person in our group by a long shot so he was often off by himself.
Here’s my favorite solitary shot, taken on a roof-top in the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. It was mid day and time for a little rest. This was in an area of the bazaar where this gentleman would have expected a solitary experience. We were careful not to bother him.
In case you’re wondering about this photo challenge thing, here are the details:
New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.
2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use a “postaday2012″ or “postaweek2012″ tag.
Hi Terri, You can count me in, I would like to be involved. Once a week doesn’t seem too onerus. Sue at quilts to dye for.
i really enjoyed these photos. How wonderful to travel and see all these amazing places. You make me yearn.
One of the best things about the photo challenge is a chance to go through my photos. It’s not like I really need an excuse to do that, but apparently I can’t spend all my time reliving my travels. Good thing there’s only one photo challenge per week!
Such great shared memories of our travels together. Just starting out on more rambles through W Turkey with another small group and very much anticipating the wonderful unscripted equivalent to encountering a man sleeping face down in the sun. These are the moments that that transcend tourism and one is a traveller. Thanks for jogging my memory Terri – so glad we shared these experiences.
I remember our travels together in Turkey so fondly. Just starting out on another foray through W Turkey and look forward to those unexpected/unscripted moments when we will come across the equivalent of a man resting face down in the sun. So glad that we share these memories Terri…
Me too. Every time you take a photo you can imagine me right there snapping one too – except I’m still shooting on automatic.
The first photo is the best but they all make me jealous that you’ve been to Turkey and I haven’t. Secondly, thank you for giving me an excuse to not feel bad about posting Paris photos. Again.
You’re very welcome.
You are so lucky to be able to visit these gorgeous places.Your pictures are very attractive.
The man must have been really tired to lie flat like that. Did you take all the photos?
Thank you for posting your beautiful photos.
Thanks, and yes, these are all my own photos. If I slept in the sun like that, I’m not sure I’d wake up when it was time to go back to work, and I think my neck would be sore!
