Türkiye - At the market




Back to Turkey. These are shots taken at the market in Devrek. The people were so friendly and hospitable. I learned some Turkish so I could tell them that I'm from the Netherlands but live in Ireland and say some polite things in Turkish. They kept on giving me food to try and trying to chat to me. Some of them had some German and I do too. So with English, German and a few words in Turkish I was able to tell them that I think Turkey is a great country and that I love the food and the people. It made them happy and their friendliness made me happy. Such a great experience. (Click on a photo to see it bigger)

Beautiful. Just beautiful. You are so good at taking photos of people. Your people photos show that you respect your subjects and are interested in them. Man, you should be working for a magazine.
