One point six million cars in a city of 18 million people. I'm not sure where that places Istanbul in the world in terms of car ownership per head of population, maybe not that high I suppose. However, when one drives in Istanbul it certainly feels like car ownership is something like 14 cars per head of population, I guess you could call it the traffic equivalent of 'wind chill factor'.
So what has that to do with the picture? The scene above is a picnic area right on the edge of the city, surrounded by freeways, you wouldn't make it without a car.
I'm glad we've got one.
The limited palette I used worked well with this one, wet on dry with a little wet on wet.
I'd like to be able to say this is our car but it's not...
