Photographer's Note

My mom often tells me about her childhood when her family didn't have electricity till she was about 13 or 14. She did her homework by the candle or kerosene lamp... Now that it's 21 century we don't have electricity, but only sometimes and for a short time...

What attracted me in this picture is the candle and my friend reaching for it. Looks really romantic... The laptop screen... Well, looks out of place, I know but... I alsoleft the lamp untouched: it contrasts with the candle...

PP: resize, a slight play with shadows and highlights, sepia.

P.S. The Turkish might find some political symbolism in this shot, but I leave it for them to discover :)
