Prince from Istanbul
Posted By: AlexanderMayorov, 06-30-2009, 11:51 PM

The industrial revolution has had a profound influence on people's social lives in almost every part of the world, and also in Turkey. However, traditional circumcision ceremonies still retain their importance within the community. Turkish families widely accept circumcision as one of the milestones in the lives of male children.
happy boy in a circumcision ceremony with his festive garments that resemble a King's or a Sultans's dress. He probably also received a lot of gifts. P.S. The consent of the child and his parents were obtained.

Great capture and nice bokeh in the background there.
The young fellow's a little dark, but stands out very nicely in the shot.
Well done and thanks for sharing.

Great portrait. He looks proud for an important day in his life. And maybe a little shy from all the attention.
