Wenzu the Cobbler II

By KingArthur
Last Saturday while on my Rabat walkabout, I made it a point to visit my friend Wenzu the Cobbler. I found him all alone at work in his little shop joyfully whistling the morning away as is so typical of him.

I made the best of my short time in there, grabbing a few portraits of Wenzu gleefully at work in his quaint village shop. As he heard the shutter whirring, I recall him chuckling away telling me that not even the Royal Family get to have so many photographs taken of them Smile

I hope you find his portrait to your liking as much as I did at the end of the day.

Superb shot Joe , if you tidy'd up his shop he probably wouldn't be able to find anything for a week . Whistling cobblers are the best

I think he is rather amused that you would want so many photographs of him, in the way you captured the silent chuckle he's enjoying as your shutter clicks awaySmile .Well captured.
