New Year's resolution #2: shoot more people!

One of the things that Bobbi and I invariably do when we're in Dubai for a GPP event is head down to the souqs for some shopping, food and photography. Bobbi normally buys enough pashminas to clothe the entire eastern seaboard of the US, a pile of safron and spices the size of a small shipping container, while simultaneously managing to charm photographs from even the most recalcitrant of the people we come across.

While she's doing all this I tend to wander around shooting random bits and pieces, but I do make the effort to shoot people too. I don't find it as easy as Bobbi, and my hit-rate of people who are willing to be snapped is quite a bit lower, but I didn't have any trouble with this group of guys. Well, other than the guy on the right who was watching Bobbi :)

As always, let me know what you think.
