I took this photograph from a running bus while going to Sultanahmet from Levent in Istanbul, Turkey. I had my camera in my hand and was observing people across the street very keenly. When my bus stopped at a signal, I suddenly I found this “1” written on the wall, and at that moment one woman was passing by following the pavement.
