Iranian tourists in Kashan - people like any other, the scarf... a fashion accessoire.

    Beautiful faces. Will be a beautiful "group selfie".

    Das Motiv kann man mittlerweile beinahe schon als klassisch bezeichnen. Man findet es an jeder Straßenecke. So gelungen wie hier sieht man es aber selten umgesetzt. Grüße Karl

    What is not to like ?
    It is a constant puzzle or challenge - how best to take a picture of people who themselves are taking a picture ? This is better than any of mine own attempts at this , these past five years.
     The expressions on the faces are lovely ; the hand gestures are lovely ; and the composition contributes to the over-all impact.
    I am only left wondering - did they know that you were photographing them ? Did you ask them if it was OK to do so ?  I myself would probably shy away from trying this picture.  I am not brave enough.

      Dear Mark, thank you for your comment ! Well, this group had caught my attention, they were cheerful and relaxed, so when I saw that they were going to take a selfie, I climbed up a step, and shot the scene. It just felt ok.
      Knowing that I can show and share my photos on the spot also gives me confidence. People that take selfies are usually quite happy to get even more nice shots... just like here : the whole encounter became a 10 minute photo session with beautiful spontaneous portraits. A win-win situation for all thanks to wifi, Bluetooth and co :-)

      Thankyou. I can now better picture the whole drama.
       Climbing up a step probably made the picture.
       If you had taken it at the same level of the people - it would not have been anything like as strong.
      I think i need to try and be more sociable in my own street photography. It's a challenge.

      You are right, Mark, it is a big challenge, and no single approach to shooting people will fit all situations ! More or less explicitly, secretly, asking first etc.
      Thinking of it... maybe the curiosity and fun to meet the subject as a person should come first, and the intention to make a photo second. This is how I like it. Make your subject(s) feel that you are sharing a special moment - a special view, whatever - and create trust or good vibes or some understanding that will allow you to make photos. The photos will reflect, of course, the way they feel about being photographed.
      I do prefer this to taking photos stealthily or candidly - even though I also that when I see no other choice ;-)

    Your photo of these attractive young ladies - in that universal activity - captures the contagious joy of friends traveling together. Nicely captured!

    Good time! What lovely models you have! With best wishes,Natalia

      :-) Seeing them making selfies I gathered they wouldn't mind me taking a photo of them, too !
