Some windows are on earth level. Like this one,of a pottery in Karacasu Aydın.
The potterer took a break and enjoys his ice cream !
Bazı pencereler toprak seviyesindedirler. Buradaki Karacasu'lu çömlekçi atölyesinde olduğu gibi.
Çömlekçi ustası pencereye çıkmış keyifle dondurmasını yiyor !

Hello Mesut ,
At first glance , it seesm so be a window in a wall , but looking it with attention , and reading your note , we undestand that the red soned part is the street . This is a fine architectural detail , and also a fine day of teh daily life , with the smile of the worker taking a break .

This is a brilliant and original portrait and a very different kind of window. The cheerful man has exactly the same colours as the road outside. He certainly belongs to this place. I like the inclusion of the wood covering the roof.
Thanks for sharing.

Hello dear Mesut,
this is one of the most original and interesting window pictures in your great collection. The gentleman offering you a friendly smile through the window while holding his icecream in his clay covered hand, makes your picture unique and unforgettable. The symmetry of your composition makes the impact of the portrait stronger, all the surrounding textures have been rendered superbly. The dark interior ehnances the sense of depth and is very intriguing as it represents the potter's mysterious workplace from which he has emerged for a little while. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

This is special Mesut. The ground level window in itself is unusual but adorned by the potter with his ice cream is even more enticing. I notice that his clay-covered hands are the same colour as the earth and assume he is using local clay. I like the shot very much, nicely seen. Warm regards Rosemary

Joli cadrage sur ce potier qui fait une pause fraîcheur à sa fenêtre. Bien vu!

What a great character with his ice cream! The earthy colours are wonderful and I like the central positioning of the window and man. A clever and amusing portrait - very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

You have found a good theme here and this is really a good picture. The smiling man with his icecream adds bothblife and humour. The colours arevall in a perfect harmony.

I love this one!
This happy man looks pleased to have his photograph taken. Obviously he doesn't bother to wash his hands before eating his ice cream as his hands are very stained with the clay he has been working. In fact, the ground outside his ground-level window is the same colour - presumably from that same clay he uses for his pots. Probably everything in his house is stained with clay!
But what a happy smile! And you have caught him perfectly, framed in his tiny window.

this one is my favourite in your recent series of windows photos. Fis2 will be so jealous as he likes to photograph windows.
The man with ice cream is a great catch here. He fills the window almost entirely.
Very well seen and captured,

Das ist ja einmal ein ungewöhnliches Fenster - und trotz seines wohl nicht sehr angenehmen Areitsplatzes lächelt dieser Eisesser auch noch in Deine Kamera! Ein Foto, das irgendwie gute Laune macht - und wahrlich kein alltägliches.
Herzliche Grüße aus dem unerträglich schwül-heißen Deutschland!

I see the antithesis to Quasimodo, the legendary Hunchback of Notre-Dame who was hiding up high with pigeons in campaniles!
Strong character indeed!
