I made this capture in one of the major squares of Istanbul on a weekday.(The same place as on my previous entry Birdfeeder)
This old man with a huge white beard had just made his shopping and was on his way to tram station.

ciao Mesut,
very good portrait of this old man, very well composed and whit a calibrate lights,
ciao, Giacomo

Bonjour Mesut,

Ce vieil homme semble avoir le poids du monde sur les épaules.Le mouvement est bien gelé et j'apprécie le choix de la profondeur de champs ainsi que l'arrière plan.



Hello Mesut,
I think this man has been traditional since long before the current conservative trend started. He may be old and perhaps tired, but I don't think he was cold, judging from his clothes on the warm and sunny day. ;-)
Well snapped.
Kind regards,

Ciao Mesut, great portrait of old man with white beard, excellent clarity, fine details and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Mesut,
Excellent clear and sharp capture of this older man.
Perhaps he's not very old but the grey beard makes him look older.
No birdfeeder on this photo but still pigeons are hanging around.
I'm not sure if this is a part of a mosque we see on the background.
Best regards, Paul

Witaj Mesut!

Good evening.

Hi Merhaba dear MESUT, how are you?

Sorry for so long no contact with you, but I came back.

Very impressive close-up image for tasty portarit via so sharp and clear presnetation in the perfect framework as usual. His front leaning pose has so much implications inside and may convey many messsage to us. Reflecting with your keen inspiration.

All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hello Mesut,

beautiful picture showing this old and tired man with the traditional long beard. Behind him, we can see two women, one traditionally dressed and one modern. Interesting street photo.

Kind regards MAlgo

Hello Mesut,

Old man with grey beard walk about the street with shopping bag.
An excellent composition and lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Hi Mesut,
I like this current page of your gallery where you decided to make different portraits of people you have come acoss. They give an interesting insight into everyday life of your city.
This is a great portrait of the old man who despite his age seems to walk of a sure pace. He looks very pensive. I just hope he is not too lonely.
Great contrast between his black clothes, and the white turban, beard and bag.
TFS and have a great week.
