Photographer's Note

This was taken at the mosque in HCMC. I arrived at the mosque and wandered around the outside taking some snaps of the exterior, then began talking with a man who was waiting for the afternoon prayers. As we talked others came and joined us too. Eventualy we were sat in a large circle whilst I flaunted my (very limited) knowlege of arabic for their amusement. I became bold enough to ask if I could photograph their prayer session, all the men agreed on the condition that the immam was happy to do this, and he was! I set the camera up on my tripod in preparation and rejoined the guys waiting. Once my gear was set up I placed it at my side, and after a minute noticed this man staring quizzically into the lens. without checking the viewfinder I fired off a shot using the remote release, and this was the outcome! I'm really happy with how this picture has turned out, as the pictures of the prayers themselves didn't come out well at all.
