It is not uncommon to see men gathering in tea houses to play games, read the paper, and have a chat whilst drinking tea/coffee, and often smoking, especially in the mornings or late afternoons.
Here just one such daily life scene.

How are you ? Nice to have you back here !
A good daily life street scene in Turkey, very common as you say
I like the B&W conversion, quite appropriate for the situation
Have a nice day, best

Brilliant scene here simple created for your B&W shot! Like it a lot! Execution and cropping were done very well. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Wanda. nice to see you flitting past just long enough to delight us with this wonderfully composed image of a bare exterior which holds so much interest on both sides of the open windows. I love the body language, the expressions of these men who seem to be Waiting For Godot. Best wishes to you Wanda. Klaudio.

There is a classic feel to this, the silvery tones are something from the 1950's for me, and also the timeless old cafe, the 'slowness' of the scene, is from another time. Somehow this image relaxes me.
