Life can sometimes be like riding the waves in a sail boat occasionally you get to steer and choose your course, sometimes balance, sometimes ripples. Temporary situations; moments of turbulence and times of stillness. Occasionally you need to cast out the anchor and wait, other times you need to pull up the anchor and drift, not always knowing the destination. Occasionally the tide takes you or the wind blows and you have to go with the flow. Now and then the wind calms and you can gently float, reassess and contemplate. What good is a compass when the wind blows you strongly in another direction? The compass reflects having patience to get back on course or if necessary adjust your journey. With balance and poise, when the time is right, you will have a chance to shine...

Tam Lizbon atmosferiyle "Korkutizm" akımının bileşimi. Oriente tren istasyonunda da bu akıma uygun kareler çıkar. Tavsiye ederim. Memleketime selamlar. Tolga

Selam sevgili Korkut,
Bu hesaba göre Lizbondasın !!!
Keyfini çıkart bu güzel Akdeniz şehri'nin.
Bu kare de her zamanki gibi mükemmel bir korkut çalışması.
Selam ve sevgiler

nice game of the shapes and shadows... resulting in an attractive visual "melody"...

Post-traitement noir et blanc très réussi et qualité de photo très bonne.
Pour ma part je suis un peu moins convaincu du format de l'image. Je l'aurais préféré en paysage que en portrait.

c'est renversant!! on ne sait plus tres bien où donner de la tete.
un retournement de photo qui complete à merveille le coté graphique!
une excellente idée!

The place of endless framing possibilities, haven of graphic-lovers, black-and-white worshippers and so on ;) Image? Pure and simple, but not obvious - will I surprise if I write that I like it too?

This is exactly the image I would like to take every time I'm in Portugal but it somehow never turns out quite as I had wanted it. I love these geometric calçadas portuguesas which seem to take you along sailing every time you walk on them. Love the rotation of the photograph so that the shadow of the person walking is pointing upwards. Congrats & TFS!

I often visit your gallery and like your very personal - somehow poetic - photostyle.
therefore I feel extremly proud that I "anticipated" a picture of you (OK, your execution is more poetic and shows more art than mine)....
PS: My shot is to find in my Portugal gallery and was caught in belem...

like the monochrome composition by the shadow of the lower part of a walking person through the street...
like the curvy pattern of the street with nice textures on it...
really good noticed with a nice framed...

Mayıs'ta bu meydanda çekimler yaparken ,tam Korkut'a göre bir zemin deseniymiş,benim yerime olsaydı kimbilir neler çıkarırdı diye anmıştım.Beklentimden öte ve yine bakakaldım.

Işık parlaması , gölge, dalgalar mükemmel bir 3'lü oluşturmuş Korkut Bey:)
