A capture I've made yesterday in Fatih.
One of the Istanbul's major districts, populated mostly by traditionalists and islamists.
One of those black veiled women had a modern white hat atop her black headscarf !

Witaj Mesut my neighbour again :)
Interesting work from street (papparazi).
Good frame and composition.
I like this daily life shot.
Have a good weekend.

Hello Mesut,
Excellent daily life composition very well realised. The two ladies are ideally placed in the frame and make an interesting focal point. I also like the presence of the casually dressed men sat in the shade in the background who serve to accentuate the contrast between contemporary and traditional clothing.

Ciao Mesut, lovely composition with walking couple, wonderful colors, splendid light, fine details and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Mesut,
Nicely spotted moment in the street. Maybe nothing special, but you timed the photo well and it tells us something about life in Turkey.
Kind regards,

Hello Mesut
A magnificent observation that shows beautifully how the modern world also enters the world of conservatives and traditionalists.
I think there is probably also a smartphone in their modern handbags.
Excellent work
Have a good weekend, groet Rob

Bonjour Mesut,

Je ne suis pas certain d'apprécier .C'est un petit peu comme mettre quelqu'un en prison et que les barreaux sont du tissus le plus sombre possible.



Hi Mesut
A comparative image and a clash of style merging together you took full advantage of it seen from good point, sharp in focus with great attention to detail. Lovely candid well timed, Congrats
Best wishes

HI Mesut,

Hello Mesut, the well-observed scene from Fatih. I suppose that yesterday was a hot day. How can the ladies go in such clothes like in winter? Funny hat atop of the scarf. Nonsense. I like the view of the domes and chimneys, maybe Turkish bath?

Kind regards Malgo

Hello dear Mesut and have a nice time
and a happy new day
sometimes one shot is one thousand words
interesting capture perfectly executed

really an amazing contrast between the traditional rules of clothing and modern objects like the purses and the hat. I liked the sense of movement here too.

take care
