4D3N in Istanbul

I visited Istanbul from 28 to 31 Jan 2015 en route to Norway and Iceland.  My favourite picture from the trip is the below showing a Muslim lady drinking coffee inside the ferry that plies the Bosphorus. And it was not taken using a big DSLR but rather a compact camera, the Olympus Tough TG-3.  Which I think helped coz it was not as intimidating.  If I had been using a noisy big DSLR, I probably would not be able to obtain this picture.

This was also not a posed pic.  I eyed her talking to her husband (not in pic) and wanted to shoot her. I purposely composed such that it appeared that I was taking the scenery outside.  Then when she turned to face the window and take a sip of her coffee, I clicked the shutter. :)
