Since last 29th May I was on a four days trip in differet cities of South-East Turkey.
Hystorycally also known as Mesopotamia whre the rivers Tigris and Eupohrates meets each other.
Unfortunately this part of my country still suffers under major economical and ethnic problems.
This capture was been made in one of the famous covered basaars of Gaziantep. A maker&seller of rubber articles in front of his shop.
Bu kare de bu dizinin yedinci karesi. Gaziantep'in ünlü kapalı çarşılarından birinde çekildi. Bu kişi eski otomobil lastiklerinden kovalar kaplar yapıp sattığı dükkanının önünde dinleniyor.

Triangular arrangement of the faces makes a classic composition. Good low angle. Dark tones fit the feeling. The business on that shop is not likely to be very active.

Interesantan tekst o regionu sa opisom, lep pogled na prodavnicu u ljude ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak, lepe boje.
Interesantan pogled gospodina sa kapom na glavi.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
An interesting article on the region, with a description, a nice view of the store people ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely shown the place and moment, beautiful colors.
An interesting view of the gentleman with the cap on his head.
Have a nice and successful day, all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

The man face expression and eyes take most attention when looking at this picture, Mesut.
Than watching other details, no wonder the maninside posted a "sigara icilmez" sign: smoking and rubber don't go along so well...
Fine taken the moment, with three men on.

Again the scene remind me of that kind of shops that are seen in Argentina and Latin America, so far better than shoppings
Good scene with three men in diferents positions
Well done, regards

I much prefer the faces of these older fellows than the cute young children :)
so much history and stories here.
this fellow doesn't look too pleased that you're taking his photo, but he seems to be enduring the pain of it :)
I wonder what you mean by ethnic problems?

Ein unglaublich intensives und eindrucksvolles Foto. Der Blick dieses Mannes, der wohl kaum auf der Sonnenseite des Lebens steht, tut fast weh. Ein sehr sehenswertes und wahrlich nicht alltägliches Foto - ein irgendwie unbequemes Bild - aber ein wichtiges ...
Während ich dies schreibe, läuft hier auf TE im Hintergrund eine Ton-Werbung für Würstchen und Frikadellen. Unerträglich!!!
Bis demnächst! Jetzt verschwinde ich erst einmal in den Urlaub.

I may not have previously made any comments, but I have definitely been enjoying this series of Faces & Fates that you've given us. Markets are such a great place to find photo opportunities and capture the local atmosphere and culture in a special way, and you have done just that! Expression and emotion felt through the imagery, a very nice take on the streets that shows us the detail of every day life. Well done indeed. Enjoy the new week ahead. All the best.
