Take My Picture

_DSC1670

I was walking along an empty alley. Really! If you were with me you might be a bit wary. There were not many people about in the late afternoon. No one comes out till much later. I am street aware but do not feel unsafe walking around with my Nikon slung over my shoulder. It is pretty simple to make out that I am not a native to Saudi. As I walked past, the guy on the left gestured for me to take their picture. So I did. I might have staged them closer together or shot each individually. I fired off several frames and shared the last with them on my LCD screen. I received a satisfied look and moved on. They did not want a copy. They just wanted their picture taken by a tourist. Okay!
