Hi Bahadir,

Wow, such an appropriate introduction and background to the strong faces and deep history of these weave-makers! Thanks for filling us in, as usual, on such rich detail and history, Bahadir.

Love the expression of the older woman, and the natural composition / body language of all of them. A great capture... thanks for "firing" the shutter!

Regards

Paul

Great story in that photography, three generations each one wearing a less traditional dress while watching the time honor tradition of hand weaving.

Very keen observation from you(ah, lacking in some photo competition jury even:! about the dressbecoming less tradition with the subsequent generations,against a background of time honour tradition!

Great shot Bahadir and enlightening commentary!

It may be worth creating an edit of the shot which incorporates selective saturation of the clothing and woven material, I have a feeling those beautiful colours could benefit from a slight enhancement!
