Unnoticed portraits of local people in foreign countries are always a challenge for me. If people see me, I ask for a picture. But Its not the same result. I’ve captured this goat dealer in nizwa at the busy market.

Nizwa, Sultanate of Oman, Persian Gulf.

    great portrait Norbert! I am too very shy to ask the permission to take picture of a stranger. I never do ;)

  • I did not ask Manon and used the confusion of the market. I was on my knees and shot upwards between some other people. He did not realized me ;-) Thank you very much.

    The detail of the beard is fantastic, as is the weathered skin.. Ah yes, 70-300mm. I just checked. :) Candid portraits are so much better when you don’t have the lens too close to the subject.

  • I am very happy with this L-Series Lens with image stabilizer. Distance to the subject was about three meter. Thank you Gary.
