Monday Moment: Bus Stop In Northern Turkey

15.April 2013


Northern Turkey

We were outside of the tourist bus routes while traveling in Northern Turkey so hopped on the commuter buses that run from town to town. Not only do these buses travel slower (and skip the mandatory tourist rest stops along the way) but they allowed us to see parts of the country we might not have otherwise.

I spotted this guy from inside our bus as we waited at a small depot for the bus to fill up with passengers before leaving. It’s one of my favorite photos.

    Lots of people have fascination with us, maybe looks, lifestyle, culture. I am not sure but we also differ a lot from the east to the west in looks as well. You captured a good photo in a moment of time.
