[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A capture I'd made in Balat.
A small residence along the Golden Horn of Istanbul.
The shop here is a shop for kids, where they can buy their toys, books, stationaries etc.
As well as a small restaurant for the kids only.

But those four elder men in front of it were discussing quite serious political matters when I made this capture !

Hello Mesut,
Just the lower part of the photo, of the elderly men talking about serious business, would have made a good photo. It is a very nicely naturally framed view. But the addition of the childish world upstairs has a slightly absurd and rather funny effect. It is this kind of combination of totally different elements that makes street photography so interesting and enjoyable. You did very well on this one.
Kind regards,

Bonjour, cher Mesut,
L'oeil du photographe ne s'est pas trompé en nous présentant cette originale composition sachant utiliser un moment étonnant.

Good evening Mesut,
Two subject on one shot: the displayed toys above the street view where those men had their daily local "parliament" meeting...
Spotted in a nice moment - when you were not seen by them.

Hello dear Mesut and have a nice time
and a happy new day
the title says its a mens world but
the second floor shows something
different a place for children!!!!!

Hello Mesut, a well-caught scene from Balat. The elderly men discussing political matters probably. The elderly women would discuss the illnesses. Amusing display of the toys above,

Well done. Have a nice weekend
