Photographer's Note

Of course this is nothing special, not even technically perfect, but it is the kind of glimpse of daily life that I personally like.

This is from Gaziantep, a large city in southeastern Turkey, just a little more than 43 years ago. The city has probably changed a lot since then but I wouldn't be surprised if there are still street markets like this, where you can buy yourself a sheep. Maybe that kind of red shirt is out of fashion. I wonder if that man remembers me, considering how he was staring at me.

This is a scan of a Kodachrome slide. It was among the many scans I made years ago but had forgotten, until I dug through my archives last week. Looking at it I get a feeling that the sheep to the right reminds me of someone, at least its rear end. Isn't it a certain president? I won't say which one that comes to my mind. It would be an insult to the sheep.

Here is a larger version.
