A tour of Turkey took us from one ancient site to another. Leaving Istanbul via the Bosphorus we saw parts of the ancient walls of Constantinople. Further along the way towards Bursa, visiting a small archaeological site, we saw a small excavated sample of the tile work that gives Iznik its fame.
Walking along the streets of Hanoi, the wall present wonderful collages of images and textures and the storefronts provide vignettes to isolate as still life. These are some of my favorite kinds of photos evoking a sense of place through everyday observations
