    Alice you warm my heart!!
    Asking before shouting shows good manors !!!!!
    Compliments..So often Tourists ‘shoot’ people whiteout shooting..often poor souls
    The photo itself is a juwel.. you might be so proud of the result..
    A FAV from Holland

  • Thanks so much for your comment John! I must admit, if the person being aware of my presence would ruin the photo and there is a way of taking the photo in a subtle manner, I might not necessarily ask. However, I would never just get up in their face and take a picture like this without asking! Especially in this situation, the middle east places a lot of respect and importance in their elders and going against that just felt wrong!
