A very cool prayerful Uncle

Ok guys my new blog is not ready(and would not be for some months) but just could not resist putting this up today. This was taken at a recent traditonal wedding in Maryland. This happens to be an uncle of mine by the way. It was time for a quick prayer for the engaged couple when I saw him keeping his cool even during a prayer session. I just love the gesture on his hands his facial expression, what do you think?

I'm guessing both of you will cherish this forever, Dotun! Atubi is right--this is "reportage photography!"

He does look like a cool guy - I agree about the expression and the hand. Great one.
A moment well captured. Good Job!

Beautiful portrait. Powerful moment.
He does look quite a character. I find that these ceremonies are places for personal displays. Each of the guests has a performance of their own.
for a minute there i thought he was doing the yahozee
