Some great faces in this image.
Yes I don’t know but suspect that they may all be brothers. Common occurrence when running a business in Turkey.
I’ll skip the caviar this time 😉
I didn’t ask the price for caviar. Actually I didn’t ask the price on anything in their shop. This was a walk, stop, shot, walk.
What is no. 67?
I’m guessing the booth number. There were over 100 booths in this spice bazaar.
Ahhhh. Was wondering what could be sold that was only a number 🙂
Brings back memories – I took a photo of the guy on the left when I was there! 🙂
What a coincidence. I’m pleased it brought back memories – hopefully good ones.
Oh yes, good ones. I was there just over a year ago such a fascinating city/country.
I’m pleased. It is a fascinating place but changing dramatically.
A very lively and colourful market!
Look at those spices.
It is an exciting place.
So do the Turkish also speak English? I’m surprised by the signs.
Yes It seems to be commonly spoken. The Spice Bazaar caters to lots of tourists.
Great scene Tim!
Jan, thank you.
The challenge in this space was low light mixed with various artificial lights. But what are challenges for….
Nighttime in a bazaar, always difficult. High ISO and generally a slowish shutter… not easy!
Yes it was frustrating and led to my decision to purchase a Canon 70D. A step from my trusted 600D/Rebel Ti3. I’m getting used to the new camera. The focus system is different enough to really make me think before pressing the shutter button. It does have a much better sensor with lower noise levels. The signs and pano images were taken with the new camera.
The new camera was quite an investment….and will reinvigorate your enthusiasm, no doubt. Low light quality is improving all the time. Enjoy!
It was an investment but I bought it through Canon USA’s reconditioned cameras. It was almost 40% off with a kit lens 18-55mm that I’ll probably never use.
Well done….a good saving Tim.
Thank you. There’s a year warranty on camera. Not a bad deal.
Excellent and I hope it performs well.
Thanks It seems to. I’m out for full day of shooting tomorrow.
Have a productive session Tim.
