This is the tenth and last entry of my recent series I titled with "Scenes from South East Turkey".
Here in one of the narrow market streets of Urfa a wristwatch seller waits for the next customer. Two empty glasses of tea is a sign for the fact that the day was quite boring and not much succesfull !
Güney Doğu Anadoludan görüntüler adlı son dizimin onuncu ve son karesi de Urfa çaşılarından. Bu saat satıcısı tezgahının başında derin düşüncelere dalmış. Tezgahtaki iki boş çay bardağı da durumlarin pek iç açıcı olmadığının işareti !

What time do you do these market place, maybe buy you a watch! (joke)
These series of South East Turkey has me a lot learned about this part of your country
Your colours and subject are very well chosen.
An excellent composition, nice choice of your angle, this cares for depth and perspective.
Very well done, TFS.

The question is: did the salesman drink all the tea himself, or did he invite at least one customer? This is a common scene with very typical details. I only spent one day in Urfa 43 years ago and remember it as a very scenic and very "exotic" city (at least to a young man from the far north).

you had more luck with this shot than the salesman with his wristwatches:) I love good daily life scenes like this, were we have a glimpse of ordinary peoples daily life. I like this composition with a good overview, sharp and clear also, well done!
Have a nice evening/

Another curious scene from street.
I like POV, colors and sharpness.

This is a nice daily life shot. Your composition is simple but interesting and clean. The lighting is great and the photo has fine sharpness.

Es ist schon erstaunlich, womt und wie die Menschen versuchen "sich über Wasser zu halten". Das ganze Foto strahlt auf eine bestimme Weise Melancholie and Perspektivlosigkeit aus ... Du bist einer den Wenigen, die auch solche Bilder hier auf TE zeigen.

another one of these interesting daily life type of scenes.
funny to read your comment about the tea on the table.
the man looks to be staring at the watches and thinking how long is this day going to be?
fun capture of this event

Two glasses, may be shared with a customer as happens in markets?
I still have some photos to watch of this series where I learn and enjoy daily life in that part of the world
Here this scene could be seen more or less similar but with fake ones
Like the waiting chairs and touches of red
Well done, regards
