My recent trip to Istanbul was filled with colorful inspiration from this "old world" city. These were merchants in a hidden courtyard at the Grand Bizarre. This scene evokes a sense of appreciation of how artisans were in times past. There was a sense of pride, attention to detail, and a thoughtfulness that has not been compromised in the old cities of Europe.
