Wish He would Keep Still! I refuse to use a Flash!

Traditional Style Teas/Coffees being sold in the Market, (Souk) in Damascus, Syria.
As soon as he noticed me with the camera, he made sure I wouldnt get a decent shot and kept moving all the time, and I was adamant not to use the flash and capture him! the best way I could, on my Camera.
Hence the result is , Not so sharp!

Hamidiyya Market, Damascus Syria

I didnt want it too grainy, so I tried ISO - range between 200-400. The Polarising filter eats way 3 f stops, and didnt think of removing it, as it had little use here! But all the same - am learning!

I like the first one
he is still but you have movement all around. Almost as if you stoped time just for him

Well, your persistence has certainly paid off, Roger, these are great, colourful shots.l Couldn't help noticing the flask that this young man has got on his back –– surely that must be quite a weight when he starts his rounds??

What a great set! And how very interesting, my friend! It's the blur in pictures like these that makes one feel the ambience...at least I do! Thanks for sharing these, I love the "coffee/tea pot" he's carrying on his back.

Not easy to take pictures in that light, did you think of pushing the ASA up ? I keep forgetting.
I like the atmosphere of this covered up market. Nice serie
