This is typical of the streets I wandered during my stay in Istanbul. A city with many hills dropping down to the shores of the Bosphorus or the Sea of Marmara, breathtaking views are apparent wherever one looks. Many of the city's streets are narrow, with hand-pushed vegetable carts resting beside newer model automobiles.
I found that contrast intriguing, and decided to push the idea of contrast in the composition of this piece. I transformed the foreground into abstract shapes, and let them gradually morph into buildings as they receded into space. SOLD
