The door was very old,and so good.Keeping its shape,form and character within all these ages.I wanted to have her there,at least a picture of it.
Actually I am not sure if the door is used by the residents of the house or they use another one and keep this for their respects.I stood there for about ten minutes and there happened no movement,but who can say a word even if she's retired:-)
And the title;at first it seemed to me as Magen David while the scanning process,I was surprised to see it at Tunisia and I sent a flower,but at the end I suddenly noticed it has 8 corners instead of 6:-)Then I thought the intention is more important than the realities,and kept the flower there.I promise to be more careful next time and sorry for any misunderstandings.

Hello Nejat, this is a beautiful shot with the flower and the tile above the door all in colour. Yes, I noticed the star after a little while and realised it wasn't the Star of David. But the doorway itself is so old-looking and needed to be photographed. Well done.

nejat merhaba,
çok şık bir kapı;nasıl da rastlıyorsun hep böyle şeylere.şaşkınlığın da hoş bir esere yol açmış;çiçeği de kimlere gönderdiğin konusu çok hoş bir muğlaklık taşıyor,yani fotoğraf kadar anlatımın da hoş olmuş.

Nice clear and sharp. Like the composition very much! This is a lovely shot, nice detail and beautiful colours and light.
