A photographer, in Turkey, takes a moment for reflection.

Nurten Doru, a Turkish woman, rides on a ferry across the Sea of Marmara from Istanbul to one of the Prince Islands. As I looked at her gaze, and the water that flowed past her face and her life in the early morning light, her eyes guided my mind to thoughts of everywhere I've been, and thoughts and questions of where I too am going. --Peter Turnley
