İstiklal Avenue is one of the most famous avenues in Istanbul, Turkey, visited by nearly 3 million people in a single day over the course of weekends. Running through the middle of the avenue is a tramline that will carry you up and down the 3km length.
The avenue is lined with modern shops, bars and restaurants. Compared to the old town of Istanbul, I wouldn’t expect a traveller to shop around here. There are a couple of places of interest, one being the Cicek Pasaji (Flower Passage). I entirely forgot I wanted an image of the passage. I was so engrossed in watching up and down the avenue, waiting for the tram to appear through the crowd at the right time.
I tried a thin depth of field with the EF 50 F1.2L, just across the front of the tram, but didn’t like the loss of depth.
