Photographer's Note

Taken from the Egyptian Spice Markets in Istanbul.

I took a few different shots of the many spices being sold, they provided some great colour and texture in the moderately lit market.

They can become a pain to walk through, you are constantly hassled to try different things, and the shopkeepers try and start friendly conversations with you in an attempt to sell you something. Add that to the fact that the markets are rife for pickpocketers and you are constantly being bumped into and it makes it quite a crazy place to try and take photos in.
