Default Re: To ninadev: About The "NO"

Manny,

Some Muslims (like the Amish) do not want their picture taken. Thus her continually turning her back toward you. She was polite enough to smile at you (Asian custom) even though you weren't paying attention to what she wanted. I disagree with the "mixed message" thing. You have to understand the culture. She wasn't sending you a mixed message - by her continually turning away, she was saying she did not want you to take her picture, and here it's due to her religious beliefs.

I love the color of the spices...I'll take a look at your other work.

Lisa
