Dorjee by MARX77 Dorjee by MARX77
I came across these Bangladeshi tailors inside a tiny shop in downtown Deira.
My sudden entrance with a camera, coupled with my drop dead good looks, scared the living daylights out of them!
But I assured them that I meant no harm.

We chatted for a while, and I took a quick portrait just as I was about to leave.

'Dorjee' means Tailor in Bengali.

Deira - Dubai, U.A.E.

Nice back-light makes interesting climate on your photo, also including the other tailor adds interesting depth in it. The only thing I might miss is to see what is the other man actually doing - it would give a clue "Oh they are tailors!", but anyway good job!

That's exactly what he was thinking of when I took this photo!
Just as I was getting ready to take the shot, I asked him if he was going call his folks in Bangladesh and wish them a Happy New Year, and before he could respond, I hit the shutter.

I didn't include this bit of info on purpose to see if anyone would pick up on it.
Fantastic observation, Weaver! :thumbsup:

Odd it is how our looks affect the viewer...here w/o doubt they gaze with pure jealousy whereas on the other hand when I enter people's field of vision they tend to look this way upon seeing me > :iconhardlaughplz:
