Rush Hour in Turkey (big)
Hello guys, long time no see

Last weekend i took flight to Turkey for official duty i had one full day in Istanbul! Then i flew to Ankara and back to Pakistan. The day i landed Istanbul was grey and snowy but i walked around in that wind. Click image for large. I relied on my 7D, 17-40, 70-200mk2 and tripod :)





































2nd and only full day in Istanbul, in the middle of sight seeing i forgot its only day and i have to rush to see all places but it was too late, but i enjoyed every bit of what i did or learned. Cannot forget those welcoming smiles and yummy food Turkish people make.













































and before i took flight to Ankara 3rd day













And i reached Ankara



















And next morning i took flight to Pakistan.

Beautiful Awais! It's hard to pick a favorite from the set (as there are multiples that jump out at me).

Wonderful series of images, Awais. Your photos are all works of art.

I really love how you captured all of the vivid colors, and I also love that you took many photos of food.

In frame #8, what is the food on the spit? We have spits like that in some American restaurants, where they roast lamb and beef for gyros, but the meat in your photo looks more like chicken.

Thanks Will, You got it right its Gyro/doner kabab/shawarma, yes its chicken meat.

As far as English signs are concerned, it might be due to tourism because in general i found limited english in Turkey compared to Pakistan, we use lot of english in daily life!

Great series. You really highlighted all of the vibrant colors in Istanbul and brought back memories of my trip to Turkey! Love the wide angle shot of the inside of Hagia Sophia.
