I like these two pictures, but I don’t particularly appreciate, genetically being one, the characterization of someone of South-European or North-African looks as überhaupt “ mafioso”... unless you really know that it is the case and that he belongs to a criminal organization.

 

Life is already difficult as it is without stereotypes and even more with them.

I have quite a good eye spotting criminals (I have been working as a press photographer for over 7 years and encountered too many of them) and that guy waiting there with his tennis ball was one of them. I can assure you that. Ok, mafioso might be a bit exaggerated, but he wasn't just a regular pal either :)

Actually Warwick that’s the way Hendrik called his picture , so no I am not seeing anything that the author didn’t put there himself.

 

"Mafioso @Tallinn, Estonia by Hendrik Osula, on Flickr"

 

You see things differently when you are on the receiving end of these things, believe me.

Ah. I didn't look at the title

I am an old (by age and usage...) X-PRO 1 user.

I know it's old, I know it's slow.... I don't care. For me it is the best camera I ever had....

 

Some shots to follow -let's start with something I call my Starbucks Affairs :-)

 

Hope you like it
