Security Guard


Meet a typical security guard in Islamabad. Friday was a beautiful day and I was in Islamabad with some friends for shopping.  While others were shopping, I was shooting.  Spotted this security guard who was probably watching me. As I approached he looked confused and before he fully realized that I am going to photograph him, I clicked. As a result you see a great face. I then requested him to smile. The result:


These security guards are usually ex-army men and take such private jobs after retirement. They are a deterrent to petty thieves but are no match to trained armed robbers. I hope that he never faces that sort of a situation

  1. Nice couple of shots here. You seemed to have reassured him resulting with the great smile in the second shot.
