40 Minutes on Akdeniz Caddesi, Fatih, Istanbul

40 Minutes on Akdeniz Caddesi, in Istanbul’s Fatih neighborhood.

Akdeniz is Turkish for Mediterranean. You can’t see or smell any sea from the area, but the confluence of the Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus strait and the Golden Horn is about three kilometers away.

I was hungry so my lens was naturally drawn to food.
