Istanbul, we are coming!

with one comment

Before I visit a place I have never been to, I love to see beautiful captures from other people. Only by learning to see from others’ perspective, we can be clear on our own perspective.
Many times, the photographs captured are more beautiful than reality, and these photographs serve as a reminder to us on how beautiful a person, an architecture, a landscape can be. Like the HSBC ads, always seek potential in everything.
The composite is acquired through the eyes of many talented photographers from Flickr and Pbase: Joanot (Nikon D200), Carlo Tancredi, Oberazzi, Samirdiwan.

From my humble limited travel experience, people in China and South East Asia are very friendly and smiles when I asked them if I can photograph them. Many in UK and some Western Europes are more reserved, a teacher even told me that I could not photograph a group of kids, in spite of the kids come to me and asked me to photograph them. OK, I respect your rules then.
Please tell me if I seek permission to take photos of people in Istanbul, will they be happy to be photographed?
