Photographer's Note

I list this photo in the 'Humorous' & 'Ceremony' category because for many people, a visit to a carpet factory in Turkey (especially after the third or fourth time!) becomes a familiar ceremony & the sales technique always has a good humour to it.
You start with the workshop tour, where the talented ladies sit & weave the beautiful rugs & ends ultimately in the showroom where the rugs are rolled & spun out in front of the tourists.
Prices are rhymed off as lightly as confetti-as if we could afford these luxurious items & just throw the money away into the breeze-but we are talking hundreds & even thousands of pounds for these exceptional rugs.
Anyhow, at the end of this tour, we are invited to walk barefoot on the silk & wool covered floor & asked by the smartly dressed salesmen 'which item is your favourite?'
At this moment i took a photo of the other tourists testing out the rugs & some how got this ghostly effect.
