A couple of days ago I went for a walk to try and photograph birds in a
notified wetland that surrounds my house from the road, as no visitors are
allowed inside the protected area. The birds were too far away, but I got
this Shulmanesque figure walking down the road, with the incongruous
combination of a large, almost defiant mark on the forehead, which depicts
him as a devotee of the Hindu god Vishnu, and a typical T Shirt from the
USA that denotes a "Pumpkin Run" (whatever that might be!. I was also taken
up with the curious child just behind him, who was probably wondering what
I was doing, because I was some distance away. The photo is not tack sharp
mainly because this was taken after sundown, with a Nikon D7000 and the AF
180mm f2.8 with a 2x Kenko Teleconverter (effective 540mm in 35mm terms),
handheld at 1/125 at ISO3200.

Comments and criticism, as ever, welcome.
