After leaving Yeni Valide Mosque, we started walking southwest towards the waterfront. Our plan was to walk as far as Kadıköy (Chalcedon), stopping to take photos along the way. It did not take me a minute to stop and take my first photo outside the mosque. This is Eski Keresteciler (The Old Lumbermen) Street, an ordinary street in Üsküdar. The sebil I show in my previous upload would be behind us on the left.

Üsküdar'da Olağan Bir Sokak

Yeni Valide Camii'nden ayrıldıktan sonra, rıhtıma doğru güneybatıya yürümeye başladık. Planımız, yol boyunca fotoğraf çekmek için durarak Kadıköy'e (Kalkedon) kadar yürümekti. Benim caminin dışında ilk fotoğrafımı çekmek için durmam bir dakika bile sürmedi. Burası Üsküdar'da sıradan bir sokak olan Eski Keresteciler Sokağı. Önceki yüklememde gösterdiğim sebil arkamızda solda olur.

Hello Murat,
A very attractive view down this street with a lively atmosphere. The facades on both sides of the street add many appealing and colourful details and the light on this bright day was most appealing as well.

Bonjour, cher Murat,
Nous sommes au coeur de la ville et nous flânons avec plaisir pour découvrir l'environnement urbain;.
Bonne proposition photographique.

Hello Murat,

Tiny, narrow streets are very appealing for they speak of age and community.
Modern streets are made accommodate cars and wagons and are much less 'cosy'.

There are lots of everyday details for us to soak up and, of course, the viewpoint creates an irresistible guide for us to follow.

Have a lovely w/e,
Bev :-)

Hello Murat,
Good perspective down this interesting street with quite a lot going one. The people and the man on the scooter make an effective focal point.
Thank you for your workshop; I appreciate the darkened sky, which brings a sense of drama to the composition.

Depth, light and shadows and movement of the guy on the scooter, all very well detected, Murat.
Green climber plant gave extra vivid color.
Have a nice Friday,

Hi Murat,

Excellent perspective, with the dual converging V shaped lines of the street and sky adding a nice symmetry. Good sharpness and fine shadow detail at left. I like the fg row of tiles leading directly to the motorbike. Tfs!

Hi Murat
Quiet a lot of happenings around here and visually attractive human interaction with some good colours helps to settle the eye in, and there's a nice lead into the background. An interesting slice of street life, Congrats
Best regards
