boats and trolleys

Nice paintings at an antiques/junk shop in Istanbul.

boats and trolleys... Istanbul scenes, maybe for tourists? but still really good... there is a famous trolley in Istanbul.

oh i am just noticing that nice sile bezi fabric it is on...

the paintings were throughout the shop - lots of other art/treasures/junk too... but it was easy to identify these as all being by the same artist.

i pulled them out from wherever and propped them for most of these photos.

the shopkeeper. he couldn't speak english but we were able to communicate enough to know that he is a musician and doesn't have any idea who the artist is.

only one of them is signed and dated but we could not read the signature.

Somebody tell Orhan Pahmuk.
