Bead seller

Dohuk, Iraq

Prayer beads or worry beads, I am not sure what they are.
One thing I do know is they are very popular around this region.
I think this guy was using it as a way to pass some time and it
gives him an excuse to wander into the city each day and talk to his mates.

Canon EOS 300D Digital Rebel
1/640s f/5.0 at 33.0mm iso100 full exif

Excellent street portrait. Very nice color and exposure.

I like the expression you have captured. Somehow the cardboard base makes it seem more real and not a tourist thing.
