I have been intending to photograph shoeshine guys for a long time. In Missouri, where I come from, we don’t really have shoeshine guys in the streets. However, in Turkey, where I grew up, we have it. So being miles away from home and seeing these little details is one of those small things that puts a smile on my face with a sense of nostalgia.

  1. You are such an early riser, Pinar! The guy getting the shoeshine is yawning! I love the contrast of blue against the gray of the Municipalidad. And I definitely think Prensa Libre should pay you big bucks for this picture.
