A teenage street vendor in Turkey
A young teenager serves traditional Turkish "kofte", or meatballs, on the busy streets of Izmir, Turkey. The scene caught my eye because of how succinctly it captured the culture of Turkey by subtly highlighting it's delicious food, bustling night life, unique people, and daily rhythms all in one image. It also reminded me of a scene straight out of the 1950's.
