[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After my yesterdays entry "Birdfeeder" today back to my archive.

The 4 elements of this picturepack shows different birdfeeder in the same place like my yesterdays entry but taken just 56 years ago :-)
The time has changed but not this interesting habit !

Hello Mesut,
What a nice collection of photos from so long ago. They are all older than any photo I have posted here. They are well taken and well presented together to give us a view of this place. I guess this is somewhere outside Yeni Cami, where I have also taken similar photos.
Kind regards,

Hello dear Mesut and have a nice time
and a happy new day Sunday
great idea to present the birdfeeders
into four photos like this way
I am suprised to read that the photos
show different birdfeeders in the
same place taken 56 years ago

Ciao Mesut, great collage of nice scenes with a lot of pigeons, beautiful B&W, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Witaj Mesut!
Excellent collage, pigeons make impression.
Interesting scene from daily life.
Well done.
Nice sunday.

What a brilliant set of photographs - love to see these old pictures of yours - I will have to go and see what you posted yesterday!

As a "twitcher" I find this very interesting; hopefully your other photo will explain more about the use of the box..

In any event, what a great selection of feathery-type shots :-)

Hello Mesut,
Four excellent photos, put very well together, with so many pigeons all over the place and surrounding the many bird feeders. I like that you captured the people from different angles. Great idea for a four-shot photo and very well executed.

Hello Mesut,
Interesting pictures of this custom in Turkey. I've seen similar scenes in India.
It is however diametrically opposed to what we can see in cities in western Europe where it is sometimes forbidden or at least discouraged to feed pigeons.
To be very honest, I wonder if the original intention is to feed pigeons in the city whether it is a matter of making money from passersby with children.
Of course, the latter obviously does not affect your beautiful, old photographs.
Best regards, Paul
