Just One Person from Around the World – Turkey (2)

Today, we’re heading off to a rural village in SouthWest Turkey, near Fethiye, to visit a lovely lady with a weaving loom from whom I purchased a couple of fine cotton scarves. Sadly, careless me lost one of the scarves on a coach in Portugal….

She was happy for me to take a few photographs, and I think you’ll agree she has a lovely face. And yippee, I got the catchlights in her eyes in the second image, which is so important in a portrait:

  1. A peaceful face, Sue! Now, whereabouts in Portugal? I’ll go looking 🙂 🙂

  2. Another face full of character. Those old craft traditions are always a delight to watch in action.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Yes, a portrait always looks better with those ‘catchlights’. She does have a lovely face.

  4. Very nice portraits, Sue. Great close up, but my fave is the first one for its context

  5. oh this is tremendous

  6. A lovely lady Sue 🙂 🙂

    Lovely portrait and you must be happy to have this memory of the maker of your scarves. It makes them so much more worth keeping.

  8. She has calm written all over her face doesn’t she? I didn’t know what “catchlights in her eyes” were until I looked at the second photo…..very interesting Sue! I am glad you offered us both photos because they show is two different types of photos! Well done! Cady

  9. Two beautiful photos of her. 😀

  10. She looks so peaceful and like someone you’d love to meet.

  12. I am revisiting your post – first time read it earlier in the week, I was so taken by your sensitive images it got me wishing I could capture mood and emotion like this. I don’t usually take candies so this is quite a challenge. Poring over the Just One Person posts from the community has inspired me to try.

      Thank you very much, Ju-Lyn, pleased I have been of inspiration! And it’s not about the camera, its creating a rapport with the person, however briefly. I hope you have a go
