Back to the colorfull life of İstanbul's streets.
The same theme as in my yesterdays entry. Just form another POV. Here you can see also the "astoniched faces" of listeners !
This Couple from USA were performing their music midst of quite busy shopping area of İstanbul.
Mainly gospels ! Gospels in a city with 99 % muslim population ! But never mind; the music has no religion.
Dün yüklediğim kare'nin bir başka bakış açısından çekilmiş versiyonu bu kare. Burada dinleyicileri de görmek mümkün. Bu kareyi Kadıköy çarşısında çektim. ABD li bu müzisyen çift çarşının ortasında kendilerine bir yer bulmuşlar ve sanatlarını icra ediyorlar.
Yaptıkları müzik ağırlıklı olarak dini içerikli parçalar ! Nüfusunun % 99'unun Müslüman olduğu bir şehirde, insanlar ya sözlerini anlamadıkları için büyük bir huşu içinde dinliyordu onları, ya da "müziğin dini olmaz" diye düşündüklerinden !

Bonjour, cher Mesut,
La musique n'a pas d'âge ; la preuve en est donnée à travers cette très jolie composition.
Les spectateurs ne cachent pas leur étonnement et leur intérêt.

the musicians of slightly older generation have to be admired,their very different clothes and music certainly appear to be causing a stir with the conservatively dressed locals.
It`s a fascinating street scene beautifully captured and well presented.
Kind regards Les.

Hello again Mesut,
This is a fine follow on from yesterday's photograph and here we see this same couple, pausing between songs, the lady giving you a wonderfully friendly smile while her bearded husband concentrates on his guitar. And we also see the onlookers, perhaps not a terribly appreciative audience, but they certainly are looking with an attitude of curiosity - perhaps thet've never seen or heard anything like this before!
Again, a well composed image with stunning details and sharpness and fine natural colours. Candid street photography at its very best!

Hello dear Mesut,
a busy, interesting and spontaneous portrait of the street artists performing for the audience of passers by. I like very much the angle of your capture that includes members of the audience and a view of the busy setting as well. You were close and part of the audience too but your presence is discreet and everyone looks natural. There's nice interaction of all the people involved, there's excellent clarity and the chromatic harmony suits the scene very well. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Splendid daily life scene from Istanbul. I like this kind of themes. Very expressive faces in a good light.

These two look like they are enjoying themselves sing in Istanbul.
They do look dressed up for the cold weather, trust their singing was good.
Great low Pov, well managed and presented.

This is a delightful shot, the couple make a fine, sharp focus and are certainly intriguing.
I love the attentive faces of the people in the crowd; there are a mixture of responses, to be sure.
The dof is just right, the couple perfectly sharp with the b/g slowly blurring into the distance.
My warm regards,
