[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I made this capture on a quite busy shopping street of Istanbul.
Those two girls (most probably gipsies) were selling fresh flowers on a stand at the corner of a Street.
When they noticed my camera they immediately focused to me and asked me to make a capture of them.
This is the result.
By the way, it's a tradition in Turkey that gipsies open stands on the main streets and sell flowers.

Bonjour, cher Mesut,
Merci de nous faire participer à travers les différentes prises de vue de la vie quotidienne du pays.
Il faut reconnaître que ces jeunes femmes ont le sourire, c'est quand même plus agréable;
Bien vu et bien fait.

HI Mesut,i think that there are better beauties in this market but this couple id enough for today,a funny moment,i like the face expressions and the usual excellent sharpness. Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Mesut,
I like their relaxed and nice attitude and their friendly smiles. It's a good street photo with wonderful sharpness and exposure. There seems to be something interesting going on across the street too. ;-)
Kind regards,

Merhaba Mesut,

I was surprised to learn that these ladies were selling flowers for I immediately thought they were practising different hairstyles, as young women often do!
The smiles of these two ladies are genuine and uninhibited.
They were just having fun being the centre of interest, supporting each other in this!
Nice use of shallow dof.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Bonjour Mesut,

J'apprécie énormément que les deux sujets de ta composition aient joué le jeu lors de la séance de coiffure en plein air. Ce genre de photos n'est pas toujours facile à faire.

Hello Mesut,
A very good double portrait of these two ladies. Very good quality and sharpness and you captured their smiling faces perfectly.

Hi Mesut,

You have captured well the smiling expression of the young women. The point of view is showing the details of their physionomy and of their clothings. It is clear and precise. Have a nice day.


Hello dear friend and have a nice time

Hello, Mesut!
Wow! Very nice double portrait of the young and beauty Gypsies.
Te sell the flowers is very good idea, our Gypsies sometime sell drugs, for example.

I thought there weren't gipsies in turkey, they are so evidente in portugal and spain and there are many here in brazil too, but not so evident as they were in the past here. marvelous double portrait, their smiles are wonderful.

take care
