Haitians do not like to have their photos taken, so one must be careful, and ask permission or be prepared to pay for the privilege of taking the photo.

Description

My buddy and I had been walking for miles backpacking through the mountains above Port au Prince, via Furcy to Seguin, when we happened to notice this man sitting on a rock admiring the gorgeous view. So we slowed down and took a few shots without him noticing. We then inquired how far it was to our destination and he said "oh, about two hours". It turns out we actually had about four hours to go, so he obviously was in better shape than we were. Shot with a Canon 60D and Tamron 18-270 lens. Haiti's desolate landscape makes for great views and lots of shooting opportunities.
