    More porters

    I originally asked the 3 porters in white for a photograph, but within 5 seconds their mate turned up (seated in black) and then just before shooting the 5th guy appeared in the background. Just shows how quick you need to be to get the shot you want around here!

    I'm always intrigued by the apparent full co-operation you get from the people you photograph. You obviously have have a very appropriate way of approaching them and asking for their involvement.

    Do you generally find them quite enthusiastic and do you get many/any refusals?

    Thanks for your comment, Donald. Generally the only people I approach that say 'no' do so for a reason - I think they may have overstayed their official welcome and are nervous. I probably get around 75% of responses as 'yes', and with it being Ramadan people are generally more relaxed in the evenings.
