Beyoğlu stroll

I used to organize my pictures according to “walks”, roughly showing them in the order in which I took them as I walked a certain, or rather uncertain, route. That system failed when I found I too often walked slightly different routes, each time coming across the same important points, then diverting again. I used a different system since.
The pictures in this series are again a “walk”. I one evening near sundown walked without a camera from Taksim Square downhill along the southeast flank of the hill that contains much of the Beyoğlu neighbourhood. I saw lots of houses that were doomed, some that were being destroyed, others that were being renovated. As so often the destruction provided opportunities to graffiti artists, and, to a photographer, opportunities to confront hope to despair, poverty to riches. I decided to walk that route next evening, taking a small camera with me. These pictures are the result. I went downhill into the direction of Galata Bridge, and went slightly uphill again near Galata Tower, then down to Galata Bridge indeed.

You might want to compare this gallery to a somewhat similar one.
