Shots from my Oct. '07, three-week trip around North Eastern Turkey. City pictures are from around Istanbul, and market pictures are from Manisa (on the way to Izmir).
I hope that the collection goes some way to illustrating what a beautiful people the Turkish are, both inside and out. As you will notice, most of the portraits are of men, because although Turkey is a very moderate secularist state, I was reluctant to point my camera at women in the street.
Many thanks for my parents and their pivotal part (providing both accommodation and transport in our trusty old van). See the rest of their Eastern European adventures here:
