Sleepy Sellers

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks for your much appreciated votes and comments on my 'Blury Blury Night' (The blury Bird) image Smile
Today a couple of images showing that even the locals in Turkey are effected by the sudden heat waves which can rise above 40 degrees quite easily during the Summer period. The first image was taken onboard a Boat during a trip around the South Coast. Now and again the boat's Anchor up in a lovely Bay and One or Two small Boats carrying people ready to sell their wares will appear and show the tourist's what they have to offer. Much of the stuff is hand made and delightful to see with their bright colours, interesting shapes and textures. V1 (The second picture) shows a Woman and Her Grandson either returning to the Mainland or off to find another Tourist Boat in the hope of selling more goods.

Sun shining here at the mo' but doubt that it will continue and certainly wont hit 40 degrees plus Smile

Have a great Weekend everyone,
and all my very best to all,

John Smile

Rest while you can, I'm guessing it's a tough life.

No wonder they fall asleep in that heat!
The wrinkled skin makes them look so old and as if life is a real struggle.
The lady looks so relaxed on the edge of that boat - I'd be clinging on for dear life!

Both North and South Turkey are blessed with natural beauty: North with its forests and south with its bays. If you are with a group you can hire a yacht at Bodrum and sail along the bays there; some are immaculate and pure and untouched. Wish you a happy holiday John. Hope to see your photographs on this holiday here.

I love both view John, lovely colours and a good reminder of a good holiday, 1 degree here and going to be very wet this weekend. Longing for some sunshine your photographs have made me want to go away soon somewhere warm

I'd be feeling quite 'wabbit' too in the sort of temperature, so I can sympathise with this elderly lady having to have a wee bit time out.
There may have been a cooling breeze off the water in V 2.
Nice bit of candid photography, John.
