This photo was taken in Kusadasi, Turkey .
What I absolutely love about this photo is the story it tells you about Kusadasi and it’s evolution.
The photo centers on a man and his camel, who sits in a busy area peddling photos with his camel for dollars. Now, I was tempted to edit out the bus and obnoxious group of tourists in the back- but that is what makes this photo.
The strong culture of Turkey draws you in and holds the center while the upswing of tourism and commercialism lingers in the background. They are shown just enough to annoy you- but they do not take away from the beautiful culture that is shown as you wander the streets and markets of this beautiful coastal city.
