[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I don't know if there are similar habits elsewhere in the world. But here in Turkey you can meet those fancy painted boxes with rabbits, pigeons or pigmy roasters (like here) sitting on them. They pick up tiny papers from a platfrom in front of the boxes and there you can read what the future shall bring to you !

In reality they are attracted by small pieces of carrots or corn, sprayed arount this platform !

Superstitions are everywhere, where human beings are...

Happy Weekend to all my TE friends !

Bonjour, cher Mesut,
Une composition qui a toute sa place sur le site, pour apprendre et connaître les us et coutumes du pays.
J'aime beaucoup la prise de vue et les commentaires !
Bravo !

Hello Mesut
I think all over the world people think that animals and special object can predict the future. They often are especially good in predicting happiness. But if this lovely blue still life anything than it is the great opportunity for some nice and attractive pictures.
Good observation and realisation.
Have a good weekend, groet Rob

Hello Mesut,
An excellent photo of these fortune telling rabbits and rooster. The note is most informative too and the bright colours of the box stand out well from the grey wall.
