I wish I could tell you more about this guy, he was quite a character, but he didn't speak any english and there was nobody there to translate. We met him on the penultimate day of our Faces and Places Photo Tour to Oman, and he was happy to pose while a few of us shot his portrait. I took 39 shots and in 37 of them he looked a lot more serious - varying from disinterested, to stern, to distracted. For frame 38 (this shot) he laughed at something that Bobbi said to him and I ended up with a much better shot as a result. Which kind of goes to show, if you don't engage with your subject, then they probably won't engage with you. So, thanks Bobbi :)
