Back again from the wonderfull world of b&w to color !
I dodn't know how long this is going to last but I wanted to share this shot with you.
İt is been made on 9th of April this year, on a Monday. Which is the date of the weekly market of Karacasu. Those two women, most probably from the nearby villages came to the market and met eachother there !

Merhaba Mesut Bey,
Tam da siyah beyaz tadında bir konusu var fotoğrafınızın.
Hikayesi var, hatta bu bir masal bile olabilir.
Çok güzel ve değişik bir an. Elinize sağlık.

Superb and poignant street life situation. Smart composition. Fine poses of the women. Excellent quality of this shot.

Nice picture. Great composition and topic. The texture of the wall is also interesting. Well done. I have my doubts about the frame thought.

Merhaba Mesut abi
S/B tadinda bir renkli calisma olmus,
Renkler ve bakis acisi cok guzel,

Great rural picture where the tone of colors are great, as the old pictures from 60s-70s. The lady on the floor has a nice expression and both are drawing a nice diagonal. It's well done.
But personaly, I don't like the red line of the frame. I will prefer all in black.
Gerrit (51935) 2007-04-18 9:23
fantastic catch of a beautiful scene. Great colours and compo.
scobert (5355) 2007-04-18 12:15
Your outstanding photography here would work equally well in B&W and in color. Your image looks like you went in a time machine and photographed these two ladies about 300 years ago with their attire and the old stonework. Fabulous!

Beautiful daily life scene and a very impressive double portrait at the same time! This photo could have been taken some decades ago, but it is today! Excellent composition, great positioning of the ladies and very interesting background. Your timing was perfect! You have managed to capture a great "interaction" between the two of them. Congratulations!
My warmest regards,
cimcim (3712) 2007-04-19 4:05
Merhabalar Mesut Abi,
Yağlı boya tadında olağanüstü güçlü kompozisyona sahip bir fotoğraf.
Bakmaya doyamıyorum! Herşeyiyle o kadar güzel ve o kadar güçlüki, seyrine doyum olmuyor.
Elinize ve emeğinize sağlık.
Direk favorilerime ekliyorum izninizle :)
enedimd (1532) 2007-04-19 5:30
Mesut bey merhaba,
WB tadında super bir renkli calisma.
Bizim geleneksel yapımızı ve karsilasmalarımızdaki davranısımızı anlatan mükemmel bir enstantane olmus. Bir o kadar da anlamlı bir kare.
Renkler, ısık ve netlik harika.

I looked first to your last uploaded photo and then I got to this one, which I liked better because here we can see face of the woman sitting on the pavement.
Well captured, it looks like a meeting of two persons that probably see each other every day, so the left one didn't dare to stand up, although she showed obvious interest in words of the right one.
I like the texture of the old house behind, it fits very well with two old women: old and rugged, yet with so many interesting stories to tell.
VeeJayCee (2410) 2007-04-19 11:12
A wonderful slice of daily life Mesut. Very natural and un-posed shot. Maybe a small crop from the bottom?
erel (11890) 2007-04-19 15:00
Çok güzel bir kompozisyon,kadınların yeri harika
keribar (43841) 2007-04-19 15:01
This is an incredible picture which cannot be taken so easily, Because these crumbling houses tend to disappear, and because these Anatolian women are just where they should be for the picture. Nice composition and I suggest that you send this one to a competition: It has many chances to become a winner.
Friendly regards - Izzet
delic (6735) 2007-04-19 16:19
A perfect capture: the woman looking up with that curious expression on her face, the colors, contrast. Keeps you looking and looking... Very well done. Regards,

Merhaba Mesut Bey,
Tebrik ediyorum. Uğur
jaywalker (16101) 2007-04-20 11:10
Hi Mesut, A beautiful & powerful shot of these two old ladies looking as though they have had a hard day & now watching the world go by as they chat, the colours (although not stunning) fit the shot brilliantly & the shch a great backdrop, very well composed, kind regards Wilson.
ninaL (21348) 2007-04-20 12:02
Beautiful one !!!
And the world of color photography is beautiful, too, like in this shot.
Very well seen and taken.
Best regards. Grazyna.

Mesut: favorite of yours in some time. Textures are wonderful, maybe just a little too busy as it detracts from your subjects... sharp though. regards, c

how are you Mesut,
a realy nice photo, good from light, fine composition and good details, good photo job here.

Ein wunderschön stimmungsvolles Foto - eine herrliche Szene! "Schade", dass die Straße schon aus modernen Werkstoffen gebaut ist, sonst wäre die Atmosphäre perfekt. Ein rundherum schönes Foto!
Ich wünsche Dir ein schönes Wochenende! (Morgen gibt's Kohlrouladen! ;-)
Standa (1877) 2007-04-20 17:35
this is very impressiv shot. I like this composition and the photo story more then your next one because of better composition. Just a detail: red frame line disturbs me
gunbud (34066) 2007-04-20 23:02
Captivating photo of this wonderful old women giving such a warm glance to her old friend. The colors and details are outstanding and the warm emotion the main ingrident in this outstanding photo.
vagabondtravels (6511) 2007-04-20 23:05
Great capture of daily life. You have captures some interesting characters here. What expression on this woman face. What a bg. Good work.

EVERYTHING in your gallery is most wonderful.
From picture to picture to picture.
At this moment, in this flash of a time i like this the most, but...
Forgive me if I come tomorrow because I just found another object of my adoration, on your page.
Impossible to describe.
Fairy tale of TE...
Bless your talent, Mesut.

That's a masterpiece in any way. The quality of colors and lighting are excellent! I like it a lot! Well done.
balatrek (7455) 2007-04-25 15:49
Excellent image, it has a very interesting light, you managed to catch a full scene of force, a great decisive moment, a natural work where the colour of its clothes emphasizes of the rest of the image, congratulations by this great shot.

I like your portfolio, I see you are doing it for a long time (not just dates of photos taken speak to it!).
I particulary like this shot. So natural, no artifact. Great skill in capturing compo, seems almost BW.
By the way, thx for stopping by.
thea0211 (1365) 2007-04-30 2:01
good morning mesut,
be it black&white, be it color - you handle them both very, very well - this photograph has a nice old flavor, even if it's new - and the ladies seem very happy to have met and start a chat, just like any other ladies on planet Earth :)!
levocan (2253) 2007-05-06 3:43
Zaman bulamadığım için izleyemediğim fotograflarınıza bakarken bu karenizi zamanında görememiş olmam beni üzdü.
Kompozisyonu , renkleri, detayların güzelliği ile muhtesem bir kare.
Zaten su ana kadar aldığı puan da bunu gösteriyor...

HI MEsut, beautiful this image!
i love the position of the women and the texture of the wall..
so well composed and taken this image!
polter (7239) 2007-07-06 13:02
What a beautifully caught scene. There is such a nice relation (and conversation for sure) going amongst the two old women. Like them both - lovely composed as they are - however the one sitting on the kerb is of course the favourite one. Her face is kind, cheerful and vivid. It's a great pleasure to look at this photo - I'm here for perhaps twentieth time and for sure not the last one.

Everything is perfect in this shot, it seems that we are in front of a small intimist tableau, the expression of the sitting lady is also very well captured,
kdialyna (3148) 2007-08-21 2:10
Good morning Mesult.
Your photo gallery is a real treasure.
I am impressed from your work.
Through your photos someone can see Turkish history and culture.
I choose one from your photos accidentally because I like the most of these.
Absolutely perfect capture.
The light, the colors, the placement of the people in the frame, the POV everything is as should be.
I don't know what to say more.
Congratulation for your valuable work.

daddo (26534) 2007-11-21 0:51
Merhaba Mesut. A touching shot of these old ladies, each with her own walking stick.What I find moving, is that they probably have known each other from childhood and have many names and events to remember together.I like the door with its old timber, echoing the women's age. Lovely light and composition. My compliments Mesut on this moment in time. Selamlar. Klaudio.

je ne suis pas un grand amateur de portraits, mais je dois avouer que la qualité technique de celui-ci me séduit.
Tout est parfait, surtout les lumières et la mise au point, les couleurs agréables.
Seul petit bémol, l'encadrement , ce rouge me gêne un peu .

Truly authentic village street scene, well captured moment of these old women talking. I presume they have been talking like thgis for decades, never to be bored by each other. After all, there is always time for the local news and rumours to be discussed.
Mistral (15402) 2008-10-12 14:29
Merhaba Mesut Bey,
beautiful image of a daily scene that will not be so usual in the future. Love your composition and quality of the image.
Have another nice Monday...

It seems to see the village of my grandfather 100 years ago.

Thread of good friendship and kindness can simply connects these women.

maloutim (9639) 2011-06-12 19:00
What a wonderful capture of these two old women coming to the market, obviously happy to meet each other.
The simplicity of their pose, their clothing, their expressions is very attractive.
The dark colours of the characters against the greyish colours of the background is eye-catching, and I like the frame made to match.
fritzi007 (10411) 2011-06-19 13:31

kennyblack (4207) 2012-05-10 10:09
Admiring the galleries we get to know the style and character of the photographer who are behind the cameras. I really like your pictures that I find very lovable and full of special feelings. Beautiful the way you capture the any moments.I like this photo what it stands for ... a moment of daily life of these two old women, very well framed and with great attention for detail. I really like. Thanks for having shared.
The best regards, have a nice day ... Marino
holmertz (50790) 2012-05-20 11:36
This is a top class "modern oldie". Time seems to have stood still for many decades in this particular place and for these women. It's a wonderful shot, very neatly composed and with a perfect diagonal going through their heads, or rather through their eyes.
yquem46 (38750) 2012-05-20 11:45
Glad to see this one commented by Gert
Gives me another chance to see since I was not even thinking of TE when you posted it
To me one of your best actually but the list of praises is already so long !
Shot in 2007, not so different after all from that of Gert shot almost 40 years ago
I Went to Istambul 2 weeks ago and it has changed a lot, but I defintely have to go the small villages of Cappadocia to see how things have turned
have a nice evening
fabbs99 (17133) 2012-09-06 12:29
Great composition of these elderly ladies meeting each other on an empty sidewalk.Perfect framing and cropping with some really warm tones to get this amazing effect.Lovely shot.TFS.
Regds and best wishes
Noel_Byrne (30191) 2012-10-07 10:26
A wonderful candid shot, the woman sitting seems to have a lot of emotion in her face, a smile at seeing an old friend. The background behind the women is beautiful too, with deep texture, yet the understated colour highlights the colorful clothing reall well.
All the best

Favorite picture! Great blend of natural colors! A great true representation of a daily scene! çok güzel
tatadalou (7459) 2013-05-05 8:51
Great capture. The focus on this old woman's face looking at her friend or her sister is just wonderful. These two women are very well placed in your composition. I also like the background, the walls are very textured.
GiovanniG (3254) 2013-07-15 13:23
Extraordinary capture sir among so many great captures. The eye of the artist is evident any many of your captures as the POV, framing and skill shine like diamonds. Your an inspiration to me sir!
Warm regards and thanks!

ho trovato nella tua pagina questa foto eccezionale che riprende uno spaccato di vita nello stato nel quale vivi.
Una foto di grande intensità e oltretutto perfetta nella parte tecnica.
Composizione, colori, contrasto e nitidezza sono di un livello eccellente e gli stessi utenti di TE hanno confermato il pregio di questo scatto premiandoti con un'altissima serie di apprezzamenti, tutti ampiamente meritati.
Sia pure con molto ritardo voglio unirmi al coro di applausi per questa foto di grandissimo livello.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana
KristinsCamera (2373) 2013-12-01 15:42
what a gorgeous and rich shot, a charming interaction between these two old dears caught just at the right moment. i love the face lifted in happiness toward her friend. their colorful and weathered appearance set against the old stones and wood of the building ~ perfect!!
congratulations on a fine shot :)
icesurfer (560) 2013-12-30 15:42
Wonderful image of daily life, Mesut. The hidden face of the woman on the right adds a veil of mystery to the whole composition, made even stronger by the upward look of the friend.
The rough walls make an excellent background for the main scene.
EstudioChispa (2174) 2015-02-24 13:05
What a perfect image, Mesut!
I attended a seminar this weekend by a National Geographic photographer, Nevada Wier. One of her many pieces of advice was that when the image includes a "gesture," it must be "complete and recognizable, no matter how small."
This image illustrates that principle perfectly!
La Paz, BCS, MÃ©xico
sayeed_rahman (6370) 2015-06-03 0:21
The rich details of the woman's skirt, sitting on the sidewalk, it would interest me a lot, but a warm daily life moment, and exchange of words, a greeting, sharing news, what could be more human ?
Karolina999 (0) 2015-12-25 1:24
amazing scene, wonderful two old women, amazing poses, fine scenery, good cut and background.
Thanx for sharing!
ikeharel (69311) 2016-02-03 3:35
I had seen this pic. many times in the "overview", nevr thought i did not comment about it: it is a remarkable daily-life documentary, from street action by the two old ladies.
interesting to know what they were talking about, a secret recipe, maybe...
