One of the most beloved and popular things sold by street vendors in İstanbul are boiled corns.
Here a lady sits on a bench midst of the crowd of the Eminönü square and enjoys her corn.
At the back you can see the charriot of the corn seller, decorated with fresh corns.
İstanbullu sokak satıcılarının en popüler ürünlerinden biri de özellikle ilkbahar ve yaz aylarında, haşlanmış mısır.
Bu karedeki teyze, Eminönü meydanında bir bank'a oturmuş büyük bir keyifle mısırını yemekte. Bu karede gözükmeyen bir ayrıntı da, mısırı yerken yere dökülen mısır taneciklerini de, serçeler götürüyor !
Arka planda da mısırcı'nın taze mısır koçanları ile dekore edilmiş arabası.

Hi my dear neighbour,
I like corn, I would like have one also. Amusing portrait, well done. I have also posted something for eating today, but the expression would be different :)

An amusing capture that is well taken. The lady eating is viewed from the side and looking into the picture which works well. The background is perfect with just enough to put her in context without it interfering. Thanks for sharing this.

Ciao dear Mesut,
beautiful and original image, really funny and captured in the decisive moment. Perfect photographic quality, every detail is well defined by an excellent sharpness. Your POV, that emphasize the profile of the lady is very pleasant. Congratulations!

does she knows that you made this picture of her? (hehehe). I don't think she will be happy from this action. Beside this, you did excellent shot. The portrait of this lady is fantastic. Great management of light and perfec colors, sharpness. Perfectly excecuted picture. I like it a very much so.
All the best and have a nice WE,

Herrlich, Mesut - einfach herrlich! Da kriegt man ja sofort Hunger. Toll, wie Du die Genießerin vor dem unscharfen Hintergrund dargestellt hast. Ein irgendwie faszinierendes Bild. Hast du sie unbeobachtet "erwischt"?
Ich hoffe, Du hast an Deinem heutigen Ehrentag etwas noch besseres bekommen!? ;-)) Nochmals, Herzlichen Glückwunsch!!!!!
Grüße aus Siegen!

Interesting portrait, I guess this lady has no idea that she is on TE... Sharpness and composition are good too!

I guess that you used your zoom to catch this so private and spontaneous scene. It is a kind of photo that I do not try to take never.
But the obtained result is grand, this woman tastes her boiled corn with all naturalness, while you immortalizes the scene by means of your camera.
I like the blurry background, that it indicates us that you have done a good work with the field depth. The image is very sharp.
An excellent composition, my friend.
