Here a shopowner, making beds and cotton bedcovers takes a rest in front of his tiny shop .
Arkeoloji'den gerçek yaşama kesin dönüş.

un bel ritratto fatto con molta perizia nella quale il colore, l'ambientazione e la definizione sono di grande qualità.
Assai piacevole anche la composizione.
Ciao e buona giornata

Good portrait for this man, well composed with the shop, nice light capture and sharpness, nice blue tones and good idea for the title ...

Mesut, the title of your picture made me smile right away. It is a terrific portrait of this man, his daily routine and lifestyle including the lovely sunny weather and the view in front of his shop reflected in the window. Brilliant shot :)

Pas tant que cela, cela dépend de ce qu'on veut bien faire avec. Rester assis sur son derrière ou bien parcourir le monde.

Life is boring, really?
Well, as soon as you get yourself a camera, life isn't the same anymore... So this decent gentleman desperately need a Kodak!... :-p))
I always like street photography featuring interesting character, and this image of yours propose just that. It shows us the daily life of a modest man and I think it is telling a whole story. The skewing of the scene is somehow strange, and I have problem trying to figure out what happened, as even the face of the old man is distorted. Mystery...!

mamate, nice portrait of this shopkeeper with his tiny shop at background. Excellent light and very good clarity. The colour tone is superb alongwith the expression of this elderly man. Excellent shot. Tfs.

This wise hearty man must have said to himself: 'Too much rest never killed anybody'!
The good depiction inside store is quite descriptive of his business and the woodwork outside have much "soul".

A good environmental portrait about this bored man and his occupation, pleasing on the eyes where there is enough compositional intrigue to hold attention.
Well detailed conveying a sense of place and the telling moment well caught. Colours are delightful, the equally important elements that really lift this image so well. Great, it's timely shot and you have keen eyes and imagination. It's a fine shot and tx for sharing, Congrats.

Good daily life image of the shop own resting at the front. It seem it might be boring, but I sure hope there are lots of joy and happiness when he goes home.
Excellent photo with good quality and details.

You're capturing well this daily life by a good composition and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see shopowner who wears great clothes and is doing the beard, and of making beds and cotton bedcovers. It's a good at color harmony and light control, too. And, the reflection of the outside projected to the window draws out a good effect.

I like such street pictures capturing the real life and the differences between cultures.
Is live boring for that guy or is he taking the time as it is, without worry about the spent time?
It's really modern and even occidental the idea that any moment must be occupied and we may not loose any minute.
Congratulations for your picture.

Mesut, you show the most beautiful part of life, the relaxed and easy way...I don't find it boring, I find it beautiful, no worries at all, no time frame, no stress..
magnificent picture of real life scene!!

Hello dear Mesut,
I like very much how you've combined the tranquility of the scene and setting with the dynamism of vibrant perspectives and colours. The more subdued tones provide good balance, all the colours have a pleasing naturalness. We are able to observe many interesting details regarding daily life and the gentleman's business. It's easy to understand why he prefers to spend time outside on a bright day like this. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
