Photographer's Note

I have been listening to some golden oldies from former Jugoslavia on YouTube and felt a twinge of nostalgia for a time when people of different ethnicity mingled as in this image and for a time when regional costumes were still worn. So I found this image from my first trip back.

I have posted earlier images of women at the market, wearing their costumes; here one can see the ultra modern flares by the young (it wasthe 70s)on one hand and older men wearing the fez on the other. An odd thing to have seen the fez in Macedonia, when in Turkey it had been banned by Kemal Ataturk decades earlier. Anyway, no fezzes are seen anymore even in Struga and people do not mingle as much.
