My photography friends are still in Turkey and posting pictures on Facebook. I’m envious that they’re there and I’m not with them. One of the things I loved about the trips were the coffee house breaks, which were photo opportunities in themselves. There was always coffee and tea on the brew. And there were always people playing cards or backgammon or okey (a game which looks like a cross between rummy and mahjong).

Beautiful black and white photos that give a clear picture of coffee house life in Turkey. I just love them all!
Ah thank you Stacy. It’s a wonderful coffee and tea social culture. You could just loll around all day !
I’m with you as I’d go back to Turkey in a heart-beat! 🙂
You’re making me want to book next year’s trip and they’re not even back from this year’s one yet !
Yes I remember the smell of the coffee and the men walking around with their portable hot water and glasses serving up chi. The only smell I didnt like was when all the men lit up their Malboro cigarettes at the same time! 🙂
I had forgotten about the Marlboro ciggies until you reminded me !
