Photographer's Note

From outside a café just below the ancient Citadel of Ankara. In the windows you can see the reflection of an old tomb, showing the typical conical roof of medieval Turkish tombs, usually - I believe - containing the relics of some important religious scholar.

As a matter of fact I didn't even notice the reflections when I took the photo. I was mainly interested in the elderly man and the many shades of purple, pink and red of his clothes and the tablecloths and furniture.

Another thing I noticed only after seeing the photo on my computer was the no smoking sign inside the entrance. Things are changing even in Turkey. Gone are the days of this kind of café.
