Seagulls of Istanbul

“Say Istanbul and a seagull comes to mind
Half silver and half foam, half fish and half bird”
Bedri Rahmi Eyuboglu
Turkish painter and poet (1913-75)

When ever I see the seagulls,  they always remind me of Jonathan Livingston who sets out to discover the world beyond the horizon in quest for wisdom.  When they come  to Istanbul, they love living by bosphorus,  flying over her currents, following the ferries and being fed by the people. Here below,  there are some of  their photos that I took last weekend.
