Buying Bread from the Bakery

By nonur  
Thank you all folks for the clicks and kind comments on my previous upload! All are much appreciated.
Today's image is from my archives and it is converted today. I will upload the colour version later. As it is seen, the Bakery is located in the alleyway, one of the entrances to Malgaca Bazaar in Urla, Izmir.

Thanks to Moira's comment I am urged to add this info:
I lived sometime at intervals in this small town close by my hometown Izmir in my childhood. My aunt worked there as a teacher, we had also some relatives living there, one of whom owned a shop at the main entrance of this market place. I have sweet memories related to those days, so I have always loved the place; but this is not the only reason, I love the town also because of the fact Moira mentioned in her comment. I am happy that many old buildings are still erect and a number of them are also being restored. The town had its share as Izmir has gone through a change and enlarged to a great extent and many people prefer to live there now.

A timeless scene. Take away the motor bike and the shorts and it could be fifty years ago.

Shame about the motorbike - otherwise history is there, right in front of you.

The moody, dark treatment adds lots of atmosphere to this everyday scene.

I could have lots of Filter Fun with this image, it has lots of potential.
