This lady peeling her potatoes in the small village of Ibrahim Pasa made an appealing subject.
Potatoes were introduced outside the Andes region approximately four centuries ago, and have since become an essential part of much of the world's food supply. It is the world's fourth-largest food crop, following maize, wheat, and rice.
...What a Peeling
I can have it all...

Belle scène de vie dans la rue, très naturelle. Cette femme en fait-elle un commerce?

Hello Wanda, Very pleasant scene from the village. almost amaze me how the people in Asia sit or squat. Haha, we call it to "sit alla turca", mow I see why. She is not peeling potatoes actually, rather cutting. And I thought they are mushrooms. Nice shot.

A nice portrait with fine colours and a very pleasant light. I enjoy the natural untidiness surrounding the woman.

Now that is a truly fitting title to this charming shot of this local women pealing her potatoes. Or is she really pealing potatoes or rather slicing mushrooms, I am not sure?
I like the way the women looks away from your camera, it makes here pose so natural and the mess around here add quite some cache to the scene.
have a great weekend

A good image can say so many things and it's always interesting to see persons doing things like this. She looks as thou she is enjoying what she is doing you have managed to capture her in action superbly and the compo is balanced by the stuff on the right. The processing works well to emphasize the scene and the colours are striking. It's beautifully conceived and executed shot. Congrats

the inclusion of so much of the ladies surroundings has helped to identify just how difficult her lifestyle is.
It`s a beautiful portrait with an ironic title.
Warm regards Les.

This is a very good portrait and daily scene. Her pose is perfect, with the potatoes in front of her and all the objects around. A good quality shot, with good light, colours and sharpness!
