Photographer's Note

I am fresh - or so late home from travelling - not so fresh (but too tired to sleep) - back from a meeting with a group of remarkable people all associated in some way with TrekEarth - I can see and read that their photographs are already stimulating interest and comment - and a publication has already been suggested! Well my first offering is actually one of the later photographs I took but it illustrates well my emotional desire to discover and portray something of 'old' Istanbul - classical in one sense but also not classical by the extreme cut of the framing - the older men and women of this amazing city (particularly those who work at street level) carry the legacy of a way of life which has so many elements which have been replaced but for me the city breathes evenly with its past as well as its present - although people also expressed so many concerns for its future - the age we live in perhaps........but this man seemed so solid, me romanticising.......huuum! Taking a look out of Jerzy's book and look in his eyes, perhaps you will discover the fullness of what i see.

Taken just off Sultanhamet Square.

Thankyou dear Turkish friends for such a great time! Let our footsteps lead us together again which ever direction we set off to travel........and thankyou for Jerzy for motivating me to do it!
