I stayed in Turkey mainly in istanbuil but we wanted to see something else (besides Cappadokia). I had in mind Edirne or Bursa. Deniz advised to go to Edirne. We went to the bus terminal but all buses were full. What to do? A man told us that there are tickets to Bursa and it takes three hours to go there. OK. We went to Bursa. But the trip lasted two hours longer. In this way, after six hours from our hotel we were in bursa not knowing what to do and how to go back to Istanbul. The bus used a ferry. On the ferry were mainly Turkish people.. I was fascinated by a family of a man with three kids, looking as triplets. I made some photos when the man noticed me and my camera and was rather angry. I went away, but made more photos but he couldn't see it.
Our crazy excursion ended well, we found a ferry from Yalowa to Yenikapi and the return trip was shorter.

Black and white complements the documentary nature of the image whilst your note completes the story. The downward point of view works well. The image is well exposed and has good tonal range.

like this! A shot of everyday life and captured so delightfully. I think it benefits from the B&W treatment which adds character and impact to the image. Well done!
Have a great weekend - Brian.

J'aime beaucoup ce petit moment d'inclusion dans la vie intime de ces gens qui profitent de la traversée sur un traversier pour immortaliser le moment, avec probablement la ville en arrière plan. Le noir et blanc donne une allure documentaire à l'ensemble.

How are you? It´s very nice picture in this ferry. I like to see that father taking care of his three children. I like the quality of this P&B too.

My admiration for all countries visited with your camera and your capacities for communication dear Malgo. You are the friend of the Planet.
On that interesting shot I make distinction of a father with three kids. They are a special subject..but the best position is from the water. After all, you did your best, my friend.

I always love a good story to accompany a picture, it tells even more of the experience. I love the WS photo as you described the angered father, that's a priceless photo...and a good memory! :) I really like how this turned out, from the elevated position we get a great view of the people below going about their business and also the slight blur from the water gives the sense of motion. The highlights add a special little touch of detail, almost like a diffused effect with the shimmer. Very well timed, observed, and presented. Glad you didn't get verbally abused! :) Have a great day ahead. Take care.

Has a little bit of adventure, a little bit of fun and a little bit of uncertainty.
its so interesting to see how the man you mentioned is protecting the 3 children...he REALLY doesn't want them to be included in the photo, he's got his arms around them and using his body to shelter them.
he's very protective!!!!
great human interest photo!
have a nice day

An interesting story and a great shot of life on the ferry taken from a high view point. A good diagonal composition that works very well in b/w.
Kind Regards, Ann

I like very much this picture composed in diagonal layers. The two groups of people in the largest layer are well framed by the lines of the ship and by the sea. Both groups are interesting to observe and entice us to make up connections among the members and stories. They both look content in being together, two little worlds and two stories in one frame. The monochrome has wonderful brightness and contrasts and makes the human interest come forth strongly. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
