People are the most interesting

Photos of sights, even beautiful ones, are boring. There are thousands of such pictures. People bring life to photographs because they can convey emotions and the scale of objects. Perhaps a photo of a child chasing pigeons against the background of the Blue Mosque will be more interesting than a photo of the mosque itself without people.

Go further than others
