    Chilling with a cuppa

    Great light on this guy, plus the reflection - I had to ask for a photo:

    If not for your title, I would have assumed he was begging...

    Great one, Phil! I only want a little more space on the left.

    Thanks Greg - during Ramadan there are a lot of professional beggars, and tourist beggars, who prey on this Muslim time of giving. A favourite ploy is to reveal an open wound under a trouser leg or sleeve. This guy wasn't one of them though.

    Thanks Mike - I positioned myself for the light and also for the fact that there was loads of trash strewn across the pavement, which is concealed by his torso in this composition.

    Another nice study Phil. I agree with the suggestion of needing more space to the left. Is there nothing left outside the crop?

    No - nothing there - I had to shoot close and with a 35mm - I just straightened it a little so there's nothing to recover.
