Photographer's Note

The second of a set of two photos I took of this young child in Petra, Jordan. I caught glimpse of him late in the afternoon selling his "Camel Rides" to visitors at these amazing Nabatean Ruins. I wish I could have had better luck with my pictures of him though. The problem was that I did not want to forewarn him that he was being photographed and run the risk of him either not posing naturally for the picture or simple not allowing me to take it all. So I had to pretty much position to take the photograph as quickly as possible to avoid being detected. Did not allow me to think how the photo would have been best etc etc. But overall I think it came out quite nice. I caught him smiling at some trekkers that had climbed up on one of the side walls opposite to the main theater ruin in Petra.
