25 Years

He is there, in front of the Istanbul University every day for 25 years now .
He sells old coins, books, postcards....
Him and his cat, makes a good team I guess...
Look at how comfortable the cat is......

This is a wonderful candid shot, and your description of who he is makes it more interesting.

The cat looks very comfortable, as does the gentleman. To be in business for 25 years, well done.

Well, as you know, I'm a dog person so I could be wrong, but either this cat is really fat or...really pregnant ;-)
Would Ollie like a playmate?

25 years. That's a long time to be selling coins and postcards.
People are fascinating all over the world.

does the cat just stay there, or does it follow him home every night? He reminds me of Rip Van Winkle, awake

Oya said...

Isabella, Ollie likes playmates but definetley not cats! :)

John , who knows? Maybe I ask next time...

Chandlermom, I guess the cat stays there and waits for him to show up every day....

I love this way of continuity. I honestly don't mind what he sells I mind he is there and I should be so terribly sad the day I won't see him anymore...
