Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra
A shoe shine man with a glamorous set up!
This was not just a scene of a service provider and a customer. It was a scene of two men chatting in a very bonded way.I wonder what they are talking about. Politics? Social Issues? Or about the strange tourists who stop and stare at everything?
Alongside their discussions, the shoes are also getting worked upon!
These shoe shine men are everywhere in Istanbul!
Such quaint shoe shine set-ups I have never seen before …
And isn’t that the purpose of travel? To see lifetsyles we have not seen before?
