The first one of a new series with Daily life scenes from Turkey.
This first one is from one of the many covered basaars of Gaziantep ; a city in southeast Turkey.
Those two man sitting on a table are most probably discussinf Daily political matters.
Güncel yaşamdan kareler adlı yeni bir dizinin ilk karesi bu. Gaziantep'in çok sayıdaki kapalı çarşılarından birisinde bu iki adam, muhtemelen "ne olacak bu memleketin hali" konularına dalmışlar.

I like this one a lot. The two men at the table make a very good composition with nothing to distract in the BG. Very fine detail and colours.
Kind Regards, Ann

you seem to be very close to these men, did they know you were photographing them? just curious.
even the most simple of the things are cultural, for example the table cloth. You wouldn't see a table cloth setting like this one here in Canada. thats a great feature in this scene, glad you captured it so well.

Right man: Oh man, I am so tired today, it was so hot and I walked in the sun. It's good with you at your table. Let me just lean my back to your wall and close my eyes for a second.
Left man: Don't worry my friend. Just relax. I will tell you everything I know now. Coffee will be here soon.

The seem like Old friends, perfectly comfortable in each others company, and happy to sit and pass the time. This is a really nice candid moment, it is so perfectly natural in envy way. Your low point is well chosen too, the table and it's vibrant colors are an important part of the view.
Thanks as always

what a lovely candid photo,the two men appear to be unaware of your presence as they carry on with their meeting.
There are a good many details to look at and enjoy in a delightful daily life scene.

Great to know about a new series of daily life, this is a good capture not noticing your presence they continue their activities, concentrated working one, resting the other, both wear matching blue color
Well done, regards

Une scène de rue intéressante que tu as bien photographié.

Well, whatever they may be discussing, it sure makes for an intriguing picture to think of the many possibilities. A great depiction of the every day life, and the low point of view adds a nice touch, almost as if we're about to step up and join the conversation. Nice, even lighting and plenty of detail and varying textures. Looks to have been a very candid shot, nothing staged. Very well done. WEnjoy the rest of the day. Take good care.

Belle scène de vie, les deux personnes sont bien concentrée sur leurs occupations, une scène de rue bien mise en image

Hello Mesut - This is a simple DL scene but one with much charm and good detail. I wonder, are the friends watch sellers? They seem to have a small display of goods on their table.
The pace of life you show here seems to come from a former century when people could live less hectically than today. I like that!

Ein Alltagsfoto wie es sein sollte, nämlich unbeobachtet aufgenommen - und deshalb authentisch. Diese beiden Herren - vertieft in ihr beinahe Nichtstun vor der grauen Steinwand hast Du herrlich festgehalten. Auch die Tischdecken-Befestigung ist einfach aber effektiv. Ein Bild, das einen schmunzeln lässt ...
Alles Gute aus dem schwülwarmen Deutschland!
