I've always loved travel photography. I love the adventure and the thrill of going to places you've never been. The experience of everything new to you. Photographing the life and culture of the location. I tend to put too much trust in the local people, though.
Only once has it turned into an unfavorable circumstance.
This time, in Istanbul, Turkey, after blindly following an established landlord, my trust had served me well. He lead us to a night spot he owned. Served us great food as we got to experience a Turkish dance known as the Whirling Dervish.
This scene was particularly interesting to me because of the colored lights reflecting off of the traditionally white gown, when combined with a long-exposure, created a neon-like effect.
