Happy Faces

I took this photograph while driving in Dubai, these are construction workers working on the Dubai metro project, They seemed quite happy to be photographed. What might seem as a normal thing to many is in fact a rarity in the lives of many people, for most people living in rural areas of the developing world being photographed or having a photograph of themselves is quite rare. United Arab Emirates.


  1. I have always wondered how the poorer we are, more open we are to accepting friendly gestures from perfect strangers......lovely pic...

  2. Thanks Moi, I wish I could somehow give this picture to them.

  3. i know someone, DR who takes pics while touring places and takes down their addresses to send it back to them... :)
    he says, it's his shot at "good karma" (whatever that means!!!) :)
