They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and sometimes, they’re right.
Instead of going on and on about how I’ve never experienced a real winter in my life, I’ll spare you all my thoughts on how magical everything looks in the snow and instead give you a glimpse of the images I captured the other day on our walk around our neighborhood in Istanbul, Sariyer, which has a fishing village feel along the Bosphorus.
|The view from the end of an alleyway.|
|Just look how snow transforms everyday objects like scaffolding into something pretty and poetic! Zounds!|
|Roses in the snow.|
|The mosque near our apartment.|
|Looks like a few folks still wanted to play on the playground in the bad weather.|
|The fishermen are there selling their fresh wares come rain or come shine.|
|These boats aren’t goin’ anywhere today.|
|Neither are these, I reckon…|
|All the stray doggies like looking pensive in the snow.|
|Ataturk looking stately in front of the Turkish flag.|
|Yes, that is our neighborhood Burger King in the background…|
|Side-by-side footprints in the snow.|
