Yawning waiting

Late at night in the Arastar Bazaar, a small bazaar next to the Sultan Ahmed Mosque (Blue Mosque) in Istanbul: shopkeepers wait patiently for customers willing to buy. | Turkey

Late hour in the clinker Warm Water


  1. Not sure if I should be stunned by the view or enjoy the view. I fear that this photo is a result of the pandemic and keeping people away from the bazaar. I would imagine that this would be a relatively busy, packed street – full of shoppers.

  2. Given the absence of customers, the business is not paying off. And maybe the photographer didn’t even buy anything, he just photographed.
    A aisle of stores that seems to have no end.
