At the Spice Market

Welcome to the Mısır Çarşısı, better known as The Spice Market. It’s the second largest bazaar in Istanbul – the first one being the Grande Bazaar which located close by. The Mısır Çarşısı is located in Eminönü, between Yeni Camii and Rüstem Paşa Camii. The market gets very crowded so it is best to visit when you have nothing else planned. These photographs were ‘shot from the hip’, meaning I held my camera up to my chest and pointed in whatever direction seemed more interesting and pressed the shutter. Here I am using my 24mm, hence the distortion which I think adds to the photo more than it takes away.

Always with Love,
