All along the Galata Bridge (across the stretch of water known as the Golden Horn in Istanbul) there are guys fishing, day in, day out. It's quite a funky bridge with the road level on top and bars and restaurants beneath.

This picture looks across to the New Mosque - completed in 1663…. well I guess everything is relative :)

      I`ve been to Istambul 3 times... but long time ago, I wish I had a camera with me! Is there a city you havent been yet? This post aroused wonderful memories... thanks!

      Very interesting!
      It must be nice to have beer "under" after fishing from "above".

      Yes... that's certainly "relative"! :-) Nice shot... and interesting.
