Ken by bobfoto

Ken

Ken was our second guide, cool dude with his fake leather jacket and shorts, he would act all cool at every opportunity.

Deadset Raskol.

When he wasn't knocking his mother to the ground and causing my GF to intervene, he was off running up ahead to see if he could find some way of ripping us off. Not worth the money I paid him but in the rare moments he wasn't being a raskol, he was actually an okay dude. GF didn't trust him for a minute.

But I had a decent chat with him over the days it took to walk down the mountain.

When we got to the end of our trek at the Brahmin Catholic Mission, he headed off towards the Mission and his Aunty yelled at him "Don't you steal anything this time!"

@bobfoto 'e's got toes
November 22nd, 2012  
He's got a look about him that is indecipherable but you have caught this! Another great moment!
November 22nd, 2012  
@peterdegraaff - true.

@maggiemae - Thanks Maggiemae! :)
November 22nd, 2012  
Sounds like quite a character! Great capture of his expression too!
November 22nd, 2012  
Ishmael looked less raskolly...:)
November 22nd, 2012  
He looks so cool. And does have a mischievious look in his eyes. Fabulous capture of him.
November 22nd, 2012  
Certainly a 'deadset raskol'; you probably should listen to your GF!
November 22nd, 2012  
@alia_801 - he was a dude!

@onie - Ishmael was a real nice guy!

@sangwann - Thanks Dione, he was mischievous indeed!
November 22nd, 2012  
@girlie - oh I do that.
November 22nd, 2012  
@bobfoto That's good; I'm sure her radar is finely tuned in such circumstances!
November 22nd, 2012  
sounds like the type of guy you'd want to walk behind, only because you'd be too worried about his antics (and watching your back) if he was behind you

Nice portrait and I did get a sense of his character before reading your description...you captured a softer side of Ken here, lol!
November 22nd, 2012  
I wonder where the raskol got his jacket? I think you captured his character nicely.
November 22nd, 2012  
Character well captured
November 22nd, 2012  
@girlie - interesting you should say that...

@lbmcshutter - he was up to no good when he wasn't around... but when we had our eye on him, he was more like a puppy dog. (about the best way I could describe it)

@abhijit @houdiniem @tigerdreamer - Thanks all :)

@tctime - he still has his guard up though?

@rvwalker - yeah I always wondered where he got that jacket from too.
November 22nd, 2012  
Certainly a bonnie fellow.. Has cheek writen all over his face. Brilliant shot
November 22nd, 2012  
Ha! he sounds like quite the charactor and has quite the cocky pose here, like his shit dont stink. Great shot.
November 22nd, 2012  
Good capture of his cocky pose and a bit of rascal in his expression.

@michelleyoung @kdimagery @daisy - thank you ladies, me thinks you have the same kind of perception as my GF... being cautious is not a bad thing in this case!
November 23rd, 2012  
There's one in every crowd!
November 23rd, 2012  
cool pose! :D
November 23rd, 2012  
@kjarn - sure is.

@agentzuckerguss - He is a dude!
November 23rd, 2012  
This is may favourite.
November 24th, 2012  
@ruthmouch - Cheers, thanks Ruth!
November 24th, 2012  
Oh my. He sounds like a real unlikeable character. I'm with the GF on this one.
November 25th, 2012  
@kareen - GF is a good judge of character.
November 26th, 2012  
@bobfoto Glad to hear it Jase
November 26th, 2012  
@kareen - I like to think she's done alright with me so far... ;)
November 26th, 2012  
He looks like he's ready to get into something. :)
November 29th, 2012  
@geocacheking - he's always planning and scheming!
November 29th, 2012  
Yes... I think he looks full of mischief... not sure I'd trust him either. Handsome chap which probably helps his cause....
November 30th, 2012  
@filsie65 - handsome raskol!
November 30th, 2012  
I think your GF rocks. High five her for me cause that was ballsy.
December 2nd, 2012  
@hellcat - She knows I got her back.
December 3rd, 2012  
I'm sure you do, still a ballsy move. She sounds like an incredibly strong woman. You're a lucky man. :)
December 3rd, 2012  
@hellcat - yup!
