you want fries with that?

About a week ago when I was on my way home from doing some neighbourhood street photography I popped into my local kebab shop to get something for dinner. Whilst pondering what to order the guys behind the counter pointed at the camera around my neck, assembled into a pose and asked me to take a photo. Today I brought them the print. What was even better than the free chips with garlic sauce I was treated to was the reaction from the guys when I gave them this photo. They work hard, long hours and with sometimes difficult (and drunk) customers. I had forgotten how someone else's genuine smile and gratitude can make you feel. I am so glad I was reminded of that tonight. (And of course, for the free chips. ;-))

    like this photo.. are the two on the sides brothers? they look so similar even in their reaction to a camera, I love the delighted smile on the middle guy :)

    I don't know, I never thought to ask. I will when I next pop in the shop as we're on first name basis now. ;-)
