Oh that was a good time, a fine fish dinner at the water’s edge after a day’s drawing, watching the gulls wheeling over the Golden Horn with Suleymaniye Camii presiding behind. UFUK means “horizon,” and mine seemed limitless from there. There were little restaurants and fish stalls and thousands of gulls and other birds, stone structures left over from the Romans and tall narrow wooden buildings selling hardware and paint. The area is now being “modernized,” so I’, glad I drew this while I could.
