Photographer's Note

While wandering Stone Town in Zanzibar looking for subjects to shoot, I came across this man quietly sitting and watching the ocean. I asked permission to take his photo - which I always do fo close ups - and he smiled and nodded. This was a refreshing change from most of the adults in Zanzibar, but a decision I fully respect (even the kids were saying no!). Females especially were very hard to shoot, looking so beautiful in their veils and head scarves, but closed to any encounter with a Westerner with a smile and a camera.
So, when I noticed the background and light falling on the man's face I was relieved when he was happy for the portrait.
