WPC: Careful (Street Portrait Yemen)

This week’s theme is ‘careful‘. A theme like this cries for  a not too careful approach but bash straight into the core of it. With a risk to miss the point or boldly go wrong. Being careful is about being aware of something that might happen. It is about something you want for yourself, not knowing what the reply is when you voice your wish. This is a street portrait; making contact, asking to take their portrait taking into account I might not get permission to take the photo. The weaponry is part of the culture. Back in 1998 Yemen was a safe country to travel.

About the B4 retouch series
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish in – an originally – small series. That series caught on a bit more than I thought.
All of them are not retouched yet. Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.
