As I held up the camera to take the first shot, Light asked if he can hold his flag, which of course I said absolutely! It was such an honor to photograph this proud and courageous young man.
I don't often ask strangers if I can take their portrait, but I am so happy I did this time. I knew instantly that I would regret not at least asking. Living in a tourist area affords the opportunity to meet so many different people from all over the globe. I should take advantage of it. The worst that could happen is they say No. The images from this quick 15 min. shoot prove that I have a lot to gain if they say Yes!
