But then, again more than that, we still are so appreciative of the gift you bring us, albeit from months ago!

So any new rules about the age of the photos to be shared? 😅
No rules, Cem!

We eagerly await many more of your pictures. This particular picture is so perfect:

It brings back memories of childhood, it’s so well composed, it has mood and will not age on any wall!

Thanks Asher, appreciated. It's all about the mood and memories indeed. Can you smell the roasted chestnuts? I can. :)

But I have also never seen an array of roasted chestnuts delightfully arranged in rows, already 3/4 pealed and so ready to eat! That must be Turkey!

Did I miss something?
Surely not.
The smell of roasting chestnuts should have woken me to the delights of Turkey’s streets.
There’s a crowd gathering, as I would expect, even in the chill of winter.
Perhaps along the span of the Galata Bridge
Thank you for waking me, Cem. It brought a few distant memories back to life.

There were street roasted Chestnut venders in New York City as I was growing up. I remember my father buying some for us in front of the Museum Of Natural History.

But I bet, not carefully peeled for you and presented in neat rows, like handmade chocolates!
