Istanbul is the only city in the world that rests on two continents. One day, I accompanied my mother and stepfather over to the Asian side of the city, to an area called Kadikoy. We spent several hours wandering the streets, and were caught up in the bustle of the city. I took this photo of my folks and the approaching young men, and drew some of the vibrant colors of the goods on display forward into the picture plane. A few strokes of a paintbrush on their clothing indicates movement and recalls the energy of the environment.
