Generally, I take many pictures of a given person or scene. It allows those around me to get used to my presence and also provides more opportunity to capture the essence of a particular moment. Sometimes, as a result, I end up with a surplus of usable photographs and have to pick the one I think is best.
This is a photograph from Jemaa el-Fna, the public square of Marrakech, that I did not use in my Morocco portfolio, instead opting for one of children engaged in a sparring match. It was a hard choice as I really like the intimacy of seeing the young man seeming to reflect before a fight but ultimately I opted for drama.
