Photographer's Note

Outskirts of the city. There are so many people who still loyal to the traditions and miss their daily life in the past. Because of the worsen economical conditions, most of them left their lands and migrated mostly to the metropolitan areas for some job opportunities.
Some of them, who were scared of the metropolitan jungle, preferred to settle in the small cities close to their rural areas, preferably to the outskirts.
This old man is one of them. I was walking up and down to take the photos of the old, traditional, houses of Mugla. I saw this man. He tied one of the goats to the pole but not the others and went back. I thought I missed the chance of taking an interesting scene. But a couple of seconds later he came back and this is the result.
His looks in his eyes, while he's loking at the goats, were so bright and full with affection. I was totally able to see his facial expression full with happiness.

PP: Just converted to B&W and cropped. In fact, the original also looks like a B&W as seen in WS version.
