One of the things I like most about photographing at the fish market in Dubai is also one of the things that makes it most difficult - the vast majority of people there want to be photographed. For example, every time I've been there in recent years I've run into the guy on the right, and every time I've photographed him with much the same serious expression. As best I can tell, he's a humorous guy, who laughs and smiles while talking to you, but he has a serious face for the camera :-)

On this occasion he complicated things by grabbing the guy on the left. They may know each other, but the impression I got at the time was that he was just standing there minding his own business - hence the rather puzzled expression.

So, not exactly a candid shot, nor much of an environmental portrait, but I like it nonetheless.
