Merhaba Erdem Bey,

What a pleasure to see you back on Trekearth from your lengthy sabbatical. I like this portrait very much. the little boy speaks to you. I had no idea of this festival in Ulupinar. I've visited Agri, but not Kars. You might consider cropping portraits with one of the eyes right on the vertical bisector (as did Leonardo and Rembrandt in the miraculous portraits they created).

Sevgi ve saygilarimla. (We are hoping to visit Istanbul next spring).

Dear Bülent Bey,

Thank you for your kind words and suggestion. You are as usual right about the thirds, however, I wanted to give the aesthetic details of the hat without losing the charm of his dress.

As for the sabattical, I am afraid I was on a far difficult journey, the one where one fights for his own life, as I was treated with leukemia and tuberculosis in the past two years.

I am much better now and very glad to meet you on TE.
