This is the famous Istanbul Spice Bazaar – always full of people and delicious things to eat and wondrous items to buy that all seem so exotic to someone from the West.

I love macro abstract work of rejected and neglected items in our society, especially rusty old dumpsters (skips) around the back of buildings, battered boats up on dry dock, rotting wood, bark of trees, and so on. Im fascinated by the color and texture that appears with a macro lens. I do almost no post-processing after taking the shot.
