Where was this taken?
Hi Sally. I was in Istanbul recently and took the shot from my hotel bedroom window in the Old Town very close to Blue Mosque. The fruit & veg van would drive through the residential streets every day selling their goods. A ‘rag & bone man’ (as we used to call them back home when the still operated many years back) also travelled the same route each day looking for scrap metal and other goods that people wanted to throw out, so he could sell on and make a living. Incredible city . If you have not seen, put on your list. And thanks for visiting my blog. MB
Yes, I have visited Istanbul but would like to return. Yes, I call them rag and bone men too.
