Wandering the streets in Beyoğlu one afternoon, my friend Çiğdem elbowed me and pointed out a woman standing nearby with a small entourage.
It was Lâle Müldür, one of Istanbul’s most important living poets. Of course, I didn’t know who she was or really, still don’t know who she is, but hey, I took an unimaginative photo of her.
I apologize for almost the year long absence, but I was [insert excuse here].
I have just returned from a trip to Istanbul and will be posting the images from this batch over the next couple of weeks.
I never do touristy things when I travel for many reasons, but one of the biggest is that tourists sights usually mean just buildings. But in Istanbul, I spent the first few days doing all of the touristy things and I was richly rewarded with such endless spectacle.
