Part of my The joys of waiting for the ferry collection, shot in Istanbul, October 2011. Read more about it at the intro to the series.
You could use the collection to navigate the series, or use these small thumbnails below to jump around as you like.

It’s actually hard to avoid rust around ferry docks, and I happen to have a liking for heavy metal, but I found this platform at the Haliç Hattı İskelesi (Golden Horn Line Ferry Dock) in Eminönü really curious: the rust here seems to be blowing bubbles inside the depressions of the anti skid pattern, resulting in a broken pattern with raised metal bubbles worn to a shine because they get actually higher than the anti skid ridges.
