Ali and his camera

Ali and his camera

Ali lives in Istanbul, a big city in Turkey. He lives in an old building near the famous Blue Mosque. After school, Ali comes home and sits at the window. He looks at the boats. They are

going out to sea.

‘What are you doing?’ Ali’s mother asks.

‘I’m taking photos of those boats,’ Ali says.

His mother looks at him and laughs. ‘Photos? How can you take photos? You haven’t got a camera!’

‘I know that, Mother! I’m taking photos in my head. I can see the photos here!’

Ali shows a place near his eyes. His mother laughs again.

‘Stop talking and go to your father’s shop!’ she tells him.

Ali’s father sells vegetables and fruit. Ali works in the shop after school.
