This is a lottery ticket seller on Galip dede Caddesi, not far from Istanbul’s bustling Istiklal Caddesi pedestrian thoroughfare. When the gentleman saw I was getting ready to snap a photo, he quickly removed his cap, fixed his hair, and then carried on making idle chat with passers-by.
It’s also one of 41 photos –the first batch of several– from my recent visit to Istanbul that I’ve uploaded to my flickr stream that are now available for use under a Creative Commons license. More specifically, Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike, or CC BY-NC-SA, and I only ask that credit is given as specified with each photo. Strictly non-commercial, please. Follow the links if you’re not sure.
I’ve got about a dozen stories and videos in the works collected from my first, and unfortunately brief, visit to this amazing city, which I’ll be posting over the next few weeks. And plenty more photos, too.
I’ve got nearly 1300 photos available with the same CC license on my flickr stream. For previous updates, check the creative commons tag here on Piran Café.
