Time for çay

February 7, 2012

I’m desperately trying to maintain productivity today…class in about 2 hours..time to bust out some çay- Turkish tea don’t mess around.  Here is one of my favorite pics from my trip to Turkey in May 2011. 

I was so taken with this woman at the periodic market in Mugla, Turkey.  The market as a whole was so busy and loud; this woman stood out to me as she sat quietly on the ground of her booth surrounded by other women, probably daughters and or sisters, methodically separating her veggie loot to sell… Watching her process immediately transported back to the summers of my childhood, sitting in my grandmother’s living room, as she taught me to snap beans (after a long day of pickin’ of course) to get them ready for canning.  Somehow I communicated to the Turkish woman my want to photograph her and she graciously obliged.
