Istanbul, with an M6

Istanbul, historically known as Byzantium and Constantinople, is the largest city in Turkey and located on the Bosphorus Strait and encompasses the natural harbour known as the Golden Horn. It extends both on the European (Thrace) and on the Asian (Anatolia) sides of the Bosphorus, and is thereby the only metropolis in the world that is situated on two continents.

All photos are made with Leica M6 and Kodak Ektar 100 film (except the last one), cropped and framed with iPad Photogene.

In between Asia and Europe

How to travel with young children and still able to make photos at least 1 roll a day? The solution is a baby carrier backpack :) Even though with Ayesha on the back I could only go as low as 1/30 with my M6, compare to 1/8 handheld in normal situation.

Ayesha curious what to shoot
