Photographer's Note

A young boy spots me taking his photo at the Jama Masjid Mosque in Old Delhi.

I was zoomed at 35mm equiv of 242 mm, so the DOF isn't quite what I'd like (the background should be more blurry, I think). But paparazzi-style long focal length portraits are the only ones I feel comfortable with, so it is what it is.

Cropped, auto-color, straightened.

It wasn't really a comfortable trip to the Mosque. It started at the entry, where I had to fight hard to pay the posted entrance fees instead of inflated fees. It continued with lots of strange stares and lots of agressive beggars following us everywhere. After I too this photo, we sat down for a quiet moment, and quickly a large crowd gathered, pointing at us and laughing. We grew too uncomfortable to stay and had to leave.
