Photographer's Note

Plenty of 'tyubiteikas' or Uzbek traditional scullcaps for sale and so much more at an outdoor Krytyy market in Bukhara. Considered as a national symbol of the country, tyubeteikas are also worn typically by the Turkic ethnic groups of Central Asia including Xinjiang - East Turkestan as well in Muslim populated regions of Russia. Interesting to note that it bears some superficial resemblance to the 'yurt' which is another Central Asian cultural icon.

Setting: 46 mm, 1/250 sec, F8, ISO Raw 200, 0838 hrs & Polarised
