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 numerous covered basaars of Gaziantep. This shoepolisher waits for the next customer while he searches on his handy !
Bu kare de bu dizinin beşinci karesi. Gaziantep'in pek çok kapalı çarşısından birinde çekildi.
Bu ayakkabı boyacısı müşterisini beklemekte bir yandan da cep telefonu ile vakit öldürmekte !

Very nice scene.
l like the POV and the sharpness of your photo.
Poor part of the country and there are a lot of other countries, where shoepolishers disappeared already...we see just on photos, as you presented.
Have a nice weekend

Hello dear Mesut,
I like the directness and discretion with which you captured this quiet scene, it's like an interlude in your wonderful series that features busier scenes or more intense portraits. You managed to include a quite comprehensive and interesting context, depth and sharpness are exquisite and the harmonious colour palette enhances the atmosphere of this intimate scene. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
