A month a go, Isa was selling his worry beads in Baalbek, he was so friendly, helpfull and sharing. Today the bombs and death boddies around him. I don't think he is smiling anymore. Probably all the shares is worried of future of his country. What hi did to deserve? The treat of life feeling pain coming from the death of his loved ones.
One month later I left him with his shining eyes..
Piril piril gozlu yardimsever, iyi kalpli Isa'nin gozleri bugun saniyorum bir ay onceki gibi parlamiyordur..
Eminim eger yasiyorsa acisi, korkusuda yuzune ve gozlerine vuruyordur..Bir ay icinde bu sevimli adamcagiz ,hayati tehlikeyi, olumu, yaralanmayi,kendisinin ve yakinlarinin geleceklerini kaybedebilmeyi hak edecek ne yapmis olabilir....

gerçekten iç acıtan bir fotograf.Bu tür fotografları görünce insan kendi halini düşünüo.
Fotograf olarak değerlendirecek olursak portre bence her zaman en zor ve en eşsiz çalışmadır.Çünkü belki senden başka o insanı çeken olmayabilir eşsizdir.

No he does not deserve it. Neither does his country deserve to be overtaken by the minority Hizbollah who stirred up a hornet nest last week. It's a shame what is happening to Lebanon, they should have taken care of the southern part of their country sooner instead of Israel who is doing that now.

Bonjour mon ami Cengiz,
Je suis heureux de revoir vos photographies. Ici, j'aime ce portrait où il existe une communion entre le personnage et le photographe.
J'aime les yeux mi-rieurs, mi-tristes, ses larges rides rappellent des années difficiles.
Excellent portrait avec une note très touchante.
Cretense (68703) 2006-07-17 6:12
Beautiful portrait, Cengiz! Very natural, joyful expression by the gentleman on the picture, his eyes are the sweet side of life. Unfortunately the sweet moments for him, belong to the past. I think that each and everyone of us should do something to stop this tragedy.
mzmehr (918) 2006-07-17 6:13
Miningful smile, there is a story in it.
background said the past and the face said the future, I wish to nowadays problem vanish for ever in Lebonan and other places, smile is beutiful whatever on earth and on everyface.
thank you Cengiz for shairing it

Çok net bir portre.. ifade , gülümseme harika ama en çok kıyafetin çeşitliliğinin yansımasını beğendim.. Harika..
Not konusunda yorum yapmamamayı tercih ediyorum... Eğer yaparsam burada birlikte çok canımız sıkılır... hele ingilizcesini de yazarsam !..
Graal (102928) 2006-07-17 9:01
good portrait, nice natural smile, fine colours and DOF. Now there's the hot area.
ahmetgedikli (25605) 2006-07-17 12:47
Gerçekten bugün oraya gitsek böyle güzel bir insan portresi yakalayamayız herhalde. Ne acı, ne kadar kötü...
Valla benimde dikkatimi önce kıyafetinin canlılığı ve çeşitliliği çekti. Harika olmuş gerçekten.
Notunda olan biteni kısaca özetliyor ama anlamak isteyen için!!! Ellerne sağlık.

sevgili cengiz merhaba
çok sevimli bir portre olmuş.adamın sevimli gülüşü ve temiz yüzüne bayıldım.(ben araman için kötü espiri yapmıyacağım)
en derinden sevgilerimle.

none of us need to know what is really happining there or decide on who is write or wrong...we do not need to have sides to understand their suffer...some one who is not any different than you or me is under life treath, has to deal with bombs every day and tries to stay alive..that is all matters...rest of us can not just watch it from a distance regardless of the reason or the way to resolve the problem permanently..cease of fire shall be the aim for all of us...hope it comes very soon..

Très beau portrait de cet homme très souriant et qui a l'air content de son sort. C'est un domaine où je n'arrive pas à faire quelque chose.
Merci pour le partage.
mammad (3562) 2006-07-19 3:51
This is a portrait of innocence speaking a thousand words .Unfortunately only innocent people become victims of the stupid wars ,while politicians dream safe and sound in their safe heavens .I really wish brighter days for your friend and humanity.
Regards and admiration Mammad.

This is what makes TE such a special place. Your image is a superb documentation of what changes a war can bring to our lives. I was reading with interest the discussion initiated by Roy. It is not for us to judge who is right or wrong, these are games played by people who need a war to stamp their authority. And countless people like him are innocent victims. I hope this unrest in the Middle East comes to an end soon.
With Greetings from India

An excellent portrait with good DOF keeping only the colors of the the OOF background to indicate the environment, and what a fine smile.
A very touching sad note.

Great work, my friend!The portrait of this man is absolutely splendid! I like the way you have captured the expression of his face.
Looks like this man has a hard life but his eyes are good.

Merhaba Cengiz Afandem!
I was crying all night for the children of Gana who were killed by the Zionist Regime's Bombs. I have read in the news that some of the children were handicapped taking refuge in that building.
May God show the oppressors a taste of their own medicine.
Merci for sharing

A grand portrait of a happy man (it seems so).
War destroy happiness everywhere, in both sides.

This is a very good portrait,
full of some powerful expression of the Lebanons man.
Yes, this is really terryfying and lets hope that piece will come true!!!
Greetings from Poland,
sid (228) 2006-08-30 5:08
nothing tehnical will i discuss this time.
But just shows what an amazing human being you are.
The pic says quite much ..but your words just accentuate it.
Whole world is paining in a way or other.. bloodshed and news headlines have become our breakfast table mates. What a pity.
But salute to that humility in you and that i see in the eyes of this person, who may not even know why the bombs were being dropped on him. He obviously had nothing to do with it all.
sufi (9588) 2006-08-31 10:26
Yandaki tüm yazdiklarina katiliyorum... Sen döndükten sonra Lübnan karisti ve ölenlerin neredeyse tamami masum siviller ve cocuklar oldu... Ve tüm dünya bunu seyretti... Bu fotograf nezdinde israil'in saldirilarini kiniyor ve bir hayal de olsa tüm dünyaya insanlik ve baris diliyorum...
cimcim (3712) 2007-01-09 10:08
I can't find words to say, it's so tragic.
I hope Isa is happy with his family in their hometown. Same wishes for all Lebanese.
I censure all people who are murdering innocent people!
I hope one day world will be full of peace!
Vincelavisse (454) 2007-01-31 18:09
No he don't deserve it. Anybody deserves that, but lots of people and country leaders does not thinks like that.
I hop that this man will be able to smile again. Howerver your picture is great. I think that this is a good portrait.
Thanks for sharing,
Benedict (7076) 2007-03-25 17:01
