Took a walk into town today and had a short trip in the market, some old man saw me with the camera and shouted "Hey! We're unemployed! shoot us!"

Great shot, should of composed it on the left of the shot leading out to the right instead of vice versa.....but nice one.

Yeah thanks, wished the aperture was bigger too so the background was blured but i didnt put much attention to it when shooting, maybe next time :)

i agree with the above comment. It's a great shot. I would just crop it in a little and maybe blur the background a little. Dont you just love it when you run into people like this man? Makes for some great photos.
Is this the only one you took?

i took another one in a different position but after a few shots the man started to be shy and turned his head away like "i was joking! go away"...

maybe he thought you were with the newspaper or something. i usually just keep talking to people and continue to take their picture. No one has ever told me to stop. YET! lol they usually start opening up more and more the longer I spend with them. Its interesting. :)

That comment made me laugh. :)

I get that sort of suggestions a lot when I'm on locations, although never one like that. Would love to get it though, and perhaps a long chat with the bloke.

However, to the portrait. Good contact, it's a good street portrait, simple as that.
