Terminal 3: The Long Wait

“The Long Wait”, Ataturk International Airport, Istanbul

Tired from a long flight and not finding a vacant seat at the terminal; I sincerely wished I could be as candid, relaxed and uninhibited as this group.  Also not finding vacant seats, they took over the mid portion of the terminal’s main hall and then sat, slept or chatted on the shiny floor amidst the rushing crowd, unmindful of amused stares from fellow passengers.  They were oblivious of me as well while I snapped a few shots as they were of some girls who chose to have them as background to their photos.
