Photo of the day (10.28.10)


Six months ago today, I arrived in Turkey, jetlagged and excited to begin my current adventure as an expat. Since then, I've gotten to know the many hills, museums, and cafes in this city nearly as well as New York. In honor of this anniversary, I chose this photo by Flick user Luke Robinson that says "Istanbul" to me with nary a kebap, bazaar, or minaret in sight. It's on the Galata Bridge spanning the Golden Horn, where dozens of fishermen stand every day in hopes of catching a fish from the Bosphorus. Some men fish for a living, others fish for pleasure, and you can spot more than a few men wearing suits and leather shoes. Hungry for fish? The bridge's lower level is packed with fish restaurants serving the catch of the day.

Do you have a great travel photo that captures the essence of a place? Upload it to our Flickr Pool and it could be a future Gadling Photo of the Day.
