    Peter run a splendid challenge on coffee and tea. I want to continue on the same theme as I would like to eat a freshly baked simit (similar to sesame bagel) with my tea. So please show your pastries, cakes, etc from your local bakery that we can smell the freshness. Here is my shot from my favorite simit bakery where I went every morning to pick up fresh simit with my tea:

    original.

    The Challenge will run from today until Sunday 11th June 2017.

    All the usual Challenge RULES will apply, including:

    1. Either take pictures that match the nominated theme or select some from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the images in order to enter it.

    2. Only one entry per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement pictures that this is what you've done. You can add or change the title and add to the edit line to let everyone know.

    3. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him/her a hard time about it: this is just a friendly photo-challenge, after all!

    4. The winner will assume the responsibility of curator for the next Salon Challenge, and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the SC Photo Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. Don't forget - that opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

    5. The curator cannot enter his or her own salon

    Looking forward to a lot of posts!

    Flickrs craptastic app and mobile layout didnt allow me to share the bbcode, so here's the image uploaded to SC.

    Flickr link which they dont deserve: Istanbul - sweet tooth anyone?

    Aaanyway, this one's from a city you might've heard of, Serhan ;) an Istanbul bakery with some Istanbul street life thrown in for free.

    If you're on iOS then Flickr Studio lets you do that. It's much nicer than the regular Flickr app for most tasks.

    I didnt know about this. But, on just looking at it, I see it has not been updated since 2014. Any word on whether support will continue? especially since iOS11 is on the horizon.

    I use old pbase and it compresses my already compressed photos so I started lately to upload directly to the posts here also...

    I've emailed their support people but I doubt I'll get a reply. It would be a shame if it stopped working.

    I like all the entree's and it was a hard decision for me to choose a winner. My wife adviced on the evaluations also. And the winner is "The Joy of Italy" by Christilou. Congratulations!
