|This was taken during my walk about in the Manama Suq on Saturday morning. I stopped for a cup of tea on one of the traditional tea shops in the Suq and got talking to this gentleman, Mr. Abdul Rahman Fakhroo, now 84 years old. It turned out that he used to work for my present company (Bahrain Petroleum Company or Bapco as it is known here) and was a crane driver for them when he retired in 1984. He started work for Bapco in 1949 and stayed with them all his working life. Abdul Rahman is one of the "real gentlemen" of Bahrain and is typical of many of the older generation. I feel that this portrait captures the goodness, character and integrity in him and I have printed and sent him a copy. I'll look forward to another cup of tea next time I go! Hope you like it. Regards, Les|

Good portrait, he does have a lot of character and a very kind face. Well lit and good pose.
Good portrait, technically well captured and a good expressive pose. Nice one.
