Photo of the Week #2

One unlikely thing I will remember about Istanbul are the cats.  They are everywhere, stately, majestic, and, most of all, calm.  They perch everywhere, on signs, cars, stairways, roofs, and here, within a wall of posters.  Walking by this scene I did a double take to be sure I was seeing correctly.  Initially there was only one cat, but as I began to take pictures a second one appeared.  As I snapped pictures a local man walked by on the street.  He regarded me oddly at first, as I was seemingly photographing a wall.  However, once he noticed the cats he began chuckling, finding the hidden amusement.
