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.

So many ways to wait for the ferry… Of course you can take photographs (like I do, obviously), or get some cash, or have a street-food lunch, or eat sunflower seeds – or when you can see there’s no ferry anywhere near yet, you can just relax and have a quiet cup of tea.

So that’s what we’re doing here, at a little sidewalk cafe conveniently in the sun, with a clear view of the pier. (And if there is no little cafe in view of the ferry dock, in Istanbul at least there’s a good chance there’s an ambulant tea seller somewhere nearby.)
