Pic(k) of the week 10: Delhi trio in Dubai

Earlier this week, I was wondering around the Dubai Creek area, looking for interesting people to photograph. This area is probably one of the best places in Dubai for "Street Photography".

2013 Pic(k) of the week 10: Trio from Delhi in Dubai

When passing these three male Sikhs sitting in a park area, I could not resist to ask them whether I could photograph them. The three gentlemen, originally from Delhi, India, happily approved the request!

For those of you interested; Sikhism was formed about 500 years ago in India and presently is with about 25 million worshippers the 8th or so religion in absolute numbers. One of the more intriguing things about Sikhims, is that they do never cut their hair. The males who all wear interesting turbans, make for some very photogenic subjects.
