    Sharing a curry

    I didn't have the light to stop down enough to get front to back focus here, but here are a few guys hiding on the floor of a market stall, sharing a curry for lunch

    2/35 Distagon, f4.5, ISO2000

    It's interesting to view the different facial expressions. I appreciate that it's a 1/100th of a second in time and we should not interpret an expression from such a fleeting moment. But the man on the right seems a bit surprised or angry (or maybe that's just the way he looks at people), whereas the two on the left are very relaxed about being the subjects of the picture.

    Again, a magnificent social documentary about life in that market.

    Thanks Donald. The guys on the left said "OK" for the photo and the guy on the was busy stuffing his face, looking up as the shutter was pressed

    Is it possible to do some selecting sharpening on the rear man without introducing unwanted artifacts?

    Very spur-of-the-moment photo/in the action. Also interesting to see 3 cases of apples from the USA.

    Yes Louise, we get fruit and veg from everywhere here. In my previous job, we sourced F&V for ISAF and US Forces in Afghan, and the wholesalers in Dubai is where we went. Lots of fresh produce is airlifted in from Europe, particularly Holland, USA, South America and the Far East.

    Next door is a warehouse completely full of Iranian produce - about as rare Stateside as a Cuban cigar I'd imagine!
