News Reporter - Istanbul 2011

A sequence of shots from my stay in Istanbul last year.

 

5 minutes after leaving my hotel one morning I happened to look over to a Juvenile Court on the other side of the road as I was passing by and noticed several Police assembled together with the Press cordoned off nearby to one side.

I decided to stand around for about 20 minutes or so waiting for something to happen.

Not a lot happened actually. More spectators arrived, including some tourists who, equally curious to know what was going on, asked the guy with the big lens (me!). I had to explain I was "none the wiser", although a few of them thought that I was journalist, which was nice!

 

Anyway, this incident outside the Court added a bit of excitement to the day.

Maybe somewhere inside me there is a photo journalist trying to get out!!

 

These are not my typical flickr uploads but I hope you like them.

I will be away after Thursday for a week : holiday in Paris :):)
