The travelers walked through byways..Judges 5: 6

Although I have never been to Istanbul which is the largest city in Turkey, I felt like I saw a bit of their culture in this display on the sidewalk and it caught my attention as my husband and I toured the streets of downtown Minneapolis in March of 2011.

I have looked at thousands of beautiful photographs on the JPG site from around the world,
since I signed up as a member in July of 2008 which never would been possible if it were not through photography sites like this, which truly brings the countries together...In that sense each of us are tourists on-line when we post our pictures to be viewed.

    I agree with you and the others that have commented on this photo about how we get to see more of the world than we ever would have if we were not on a photo sharing site like JPG! It's nice that you could see some of the wares that are in Istanbul on your trip to Minneapolis.
