Photographer's Note

This is my first pic of B/W and FACES series. I tasted B/W with bfly's B/W photos which one of them is here "Lost 6.

This woman is from Caunos/Dalyan. She is only 38 years old. She cooks a kind of traditional thin which is cooked on a metal sheet called as "gozleme". She, besides her daily hard works, does this every week in the local market established at the town that is called as BAZAAR.

She was looking at my dog and than turned to me as you see here now. I requested her to stand still for a couple of seconds and took the pic.

I wondered at that time and still wondering IF SHE WAS SMILING or WAS IT THE REFLECTION OF THE BURDEN OF HER LIFE. I'm still undecided.
