Lunchtime was well past in the small café in the Grassmarket, and by the time I had eaten, being the only customer left, I engaged the waiter in conversation as he cleared the table. I discovered a strong personal identity with Yadgar, who was brought up in a small farm in a Kurdish village, similar to my childhood experience on a croft in Skye ( he was familiar with the island and hoped to visit). Enforced bankruptcy of over 1,500 village farms by the government made it compulsory for his family to leave and he decided to come to make a new life for himself in Scotland. He was optimistic about his future in Scotland with his girlfriend, for whom he hoped would be successful with her university course. My camera was fitted with my 85 mm lens and I shot two very emotive portrait images of Yadgar. I left the café feeling that in capturing the moment, I had viewed another window on the world, through my street photography.
