Photographer's Note

A capture I've made yesterday during my daily walk on the beachline of the Sea of Marmara, at the Asian part of İstanbul.
This young girl was sitting on the seaside, enjoying her beer and feeding he seagulls at the same time with breadcrumbs.

Here a poem of the famous Turkish Poet Nazım Hikmet (1902-1963) about spring :

SPRING IN THE AIR

A spring piece left in the middle
taut, thick fingers punch
the teeth of my typewriter.
Three words are down on paper
in capitals:
SPRING
SPRING
SPRING…
And me — poet, proofreader,
the man who’s forced to read
two thousand bad lines
every day
for two liras–
why,
since spring
has come, am I
still sitting here
like a ragged
black chair?
My head puts on its cap by itself,
I fly out of the printer’s,
I’m on the street.
The lead dirt of the composing room
on my face,
seventy-five cents in my pocket.
SPRING IN THE AIR…
