Graphically this is a lovely photo, in every other aspect it is quite shocking. Although this is Somaliland, which is reasonably stable and peaceful, the "Kalashnikov culture" that this picture shows us is the cause of daily misery to millions of people. Thanks for showing us this absurdity, which has become even stronger by the proper city dress of this man.

Niby sympatyczny facio w garniaku, a wymowa skrajnie dramatyczna.

J'aime bien le constraste entre son habillement de business man et sa monstre kalachnikov au cou..
Bravo bien vue

Well composed and very impressive.

Quite a strong shot Swiatek, and reminded me very much of the Lord of War as soon as I opened the image. Just getting so close to such a powerful weapon is a feat in itself...good image.

I would have called it "May I Have This Dance." Always look sharp when you're out for blood. Great portrait. You'd better send him a copy, if you know what's good for you. -Hugh

Very good POV and subject. This man, in black and with the gun, looks terrific. And your POV and composition enhance this feeling.

so how is the lord of war these days? ;o)
strange humour of a nice smiling gentleman posing.
tie matching the gun.
a 'fashionista' after all.
'shivering' image. but alive.
