> Sweet lullaby of the ☼rigins


Yesterday, as i didn't feel working but walking, I photographed this couple from Bulgaria.
Yesterday, my great-grandfather Agop, singer and musician, played the same instrument in Turkey and then in France.
Yesterday, for 1/2500th sec at maximum aperture, i heard the music of my origins in the eyes of that man with whom i "talked" a long moment, leaving him and coming back again, with 2,5 words of turkish and many more gestures & smiles.
Thanks to both of U & take care❤



Hier, alors que je n'avais pas envie de travailler mais de marcher, j'ai photographié ce couple bulgare.
Hier, mon arrière-grand-père Agop, chanteur et musicien, jouait de ce même instrument en Turquie puis en France.
Hier, pendant 1/2500ème de sec. à ouverture maximum, j'ai entendu la musique de mes origines dans les yeux de cet homme avec qui j'ai "parlé" un long moment, partant puis revenant vers lui, avec 2,5 mots de turc et bien + de gestes & de sourires.
Merci à vous 2 & take care❤
