[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A capture I've made during my this years "Blue Voyage" at the Aegean coasts.
This young mother is -according her dress- a typical "islamic traditionalist".
But she takes place in the "sealife" of her kids, even without a bathing suit.
Similar scenes can be observed today almost in every beach of the country.

Bonjour, cher Mesut,
Je partage votre opinion sur la note d'accompagnement...
Un bon bain en cette période estivale, cela fait du bien.
Très bonne journée.

Hello Mesut,
A rather curious scene to Western eyes perhaps, but one that tells us a story. The square crops suits perfectly. Pleasant lights and colours and very good sharpness.

Hello Mesut,
It's a nice and interesting photo. While the mother is well dressed I am surprised to see the little boy all naked. It would be perfectly all right where I live but I thought it would be considered taboo in a traditionalist society. I doubt that it is even allowed in the USA, where the girl would probably also be forced to cover her chest.
Kind regards,

  • Great

Hello Mesut,
the Summer snapshot with the mother to take care of her children is very common but wearing this Islamic bath is very strange...A good scene from the life of some people of the country.


Selam Mesut,
Bayıldım bu kareye ! Türkiyenin gerçek yüzü bu işte.

Hallo Mesut,
spielende Kinder sind immer ein gutes Motiv, gut gemacht!
Viele Grüße und einen schönen Tag

Merhaba Mesut, good picture of this interesting scene of daily life on the beach, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. A great job perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.

Good night and happy weekend.
All the best from the south of Spain.
