Its quite a coincidence...on our last day of our Turkey trip, while we were with Deniz in the Eyüp Sultan Mosque area, we saw tens of boys with their parents going to this famous mosque for sünnet ceremony...We were in fact requested by a few mothers to take pictures of their lads (I sent the pictures dutifully to them by return mail).
Nice street shot, even though we are not facing the trio...wonder aloud whether they are going to this msoque with one minaret or to the Eyup Sultan?!
PS : Any thoughts on my last thread on Ladakh on your plans to visit there?

Good capture with the wide lens. The building does not seem very old..against the clear cyan sky, the contarst of the brown stones is good...nicely framed with the date palm tree on the right...
Have a good week!

From your POV high above Pokara, the Phewa Lake reflecting the sky drenched by the alte sunlight makes attractive viewing. I like the layers of mountains, so beautifully brought out here...creates fine depth.
Very nice and beautiful shot!

Beautiful light captured, especially on the spire at the end of the perspective. Exposure is well handled, given the contrast. I also liked the reflection of the fine building on the cobblestones and small puddles of water. Fine work!

Interesting close crop in vertical format my friend...but I think there was room in the lower part to show more of the instrument. Its a 3 string, so would sound pretty much like the instruments you can see in Rajasthan as well..The main body of the instrument seems to be made with a dried something...gourd? leather?

So I would like to believe that the gent here is not a berber..
The light is harsh and I can feel the heat almost! The balance of the compo is achieved by the window. Mud baked walls again...the cool is inside and in shade!

So when we see a blue picture from Morocco, it should be from Chefchaouen...is it so? Actually I never checked the location. There are tons of pictures by Claude Renault from this place/city.
The wide lens effect is nice...the concave stairs; The two guys balance the compo well...could be texting to each other as well...that's the way our world is going; No social meet ups, rather 'groups', no dialogue, only 'chats'...we (at least I) seem to be from Paleozoic era at office!

I am sure this place stinks....yet tons of tourists flock here everyday for these pictures. For us, whose been to the Park Circus tannery areas or even dhapa math, such smell is the way of our lives. Even in thumbnails these 'leather baths' looks very graphic...I wish I can see a closeup with one of the workers (we see 3 here)..

I am, whenever I see a picture of a Tuareg, at awe at their dress...looks rich and heavy...and wonder why they wear such a heavy dress in the heat of Sahara? Maybe I am wrong, but I get a feeling that this dress is more geared for tourism?
This is an interesting double portrait. The mud walls create a fine BG and the slightly ajar door almost beckons us to a different world!

Sadly not appreciated, I find this black & white shot intriguing. High contrast mostly black, but that's where the shadows are most effective. One dancer and two ardent students...that's what I see in this picture!

Its almost a counter balancing act...the reds at tye top and the blue at the bottom. Indeed well composed, with the third point (of the triangle) being provided by an unsuspecting pigeon.
A lovely DL shot...simple but classy!
