I was very taken with Virginia's quest to shoot while on holiday in Paris, with her camera, come on people!, what she called: the 100 French Strangers Challenge
If you haven't seen her Paris blog, you must. Its here.
Her Birmingham Alabama Photo Blog is here.
When I saw a cab making a turn past me as I crossed Broadway at 73rd St, I noticed the driver's turban and beard so I leaned into the open window and said: May I take your photo?
Shooting into the unlit interior of the cab put the driver almost completely in shadow. I played with the contrast after I downloaded.
EDITED to add: One of my kind commentors, Siva, who has an amazing photoblog here, has told me that this gentleman "is an Indian from Punchab state and those people are called Sikhs."
