[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This old guy and his goat probably earn more than the minimum wage. At 20 dirham (2 ) a photo op, he might
just make more than the average income of 200 /month.
I made him work for it, though., by asking him countless questions about the history of the Agadir kasbah (part of which shown in background), the political situation,
the life cycle of a goat, etc. He got a surprisingly high percentage of the answers correst and, almost, earned the 20 dirham.

Hi, Michael. Nice portrait of this gentleman with the goat. Good tight cropping,expression and pose and including the background adds interest to the photo. I did a workshop but this is just my opinion. Cheers and TFS.

Hi Michael,

Great shot of this interesting looking fellow and his goat. I like the lighting and shadows in this, they work well to accentuate his clothing and head dress.

Best regards,
