    Ram: I was shooting rooftop Holga photos, looked over the edge and saw him, grabbed my SLR. He was five floors down, just barely within reach with the lens I was using (still had to crop a bit in the end). I tried to shoot fast because I really didn't want him to notice me. Very private moment.

    This is a real "A" list image... Very moody and the B+W is the only way to go, color would have ruined it. Top shelf artwork!

    wissam: This is the late afternoon/ evening prayer, aka "sunset prayer". I didn't realize when I titled it that it also means Morrocco (Maghreb)!

    Kreddible Trout said (5 Dec 2007):

    making, possibly an inadvertent, point about the state of religious freedom in the land of the free. I'm sure this is not necessarily scenario, but it looks as though this man has had to find a secret place in an alley to freely practice his religion. I know it's not for this man, but it looks shameful.
    awesome shot.
