When traveling, getting off the beaten path is what I love the most. Although, it would be good to know how to speak the language of the locals.
In a tiny village in Sirince, Turkey, I took a walk through the back cobble stoned streets looking for something interesting to shoot. Seeing this obvious tourist, this woman gestured me over to her tiny, very humble home to sell me some of her wares.
Take a look at how I struggle trying to figure out how much Lira this woman wants for a small table linen I was buying from her. It was all worth the effort as I got some striking portraits of her. After taking a few photos of her, she gave me a piece of fruit to feed her donkey that was chained up in this very dark, depressing cave like room next to her home. Ah, I love to see how the rest of the world lives.
