When I read the theme of this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Security, I immediately had this street portrait of a Tanzanian Security Guard in mind. He was protecting the entrance of a bank in Moshi, Tanzania. And he loved to pose for my camera. But while scanning over my street photo collection I also found this more subtle interpretation of the theme which I took in the old town of Marseille last year.
I hope you enjoy my interpretation of “Security”.
Have a great Thursday!

Really enjoy your photos! Great blog.
Thank you so much for your kind words ! Marcus
Enjoyed the contrast of interpretation and the photos!
Thank you, Katherine! Have a great weekend! Marcus
Both are wonderful choices! I hope that you are having a great day Marcus. 🙂 – Amy
Thanks for your kind words and wished, Amy 🙂 !! My day wasn’t all that bad 😉 . despite a 2.5h delay of my Portland to Seattle flight they held the international connection long enough for us to make it, so I’ll be home later today, all that counts 🙂 ! Have a great weekend! Marcus
Bild 1 ist wie eine Klatsche ins Gesicht. Vollgas! Sehr geiles Foto!!!
Super lieben Dank 🙂 !!
Both are great interpretations of the them but so extraordinary different. I just have to love the expression and the pride of the security guard.
Thank you Otto, your kind comment is so much appreciated! Marcus
love that Tanzanian Security guy pic! This is impressive. Damn good.
Thanks Claudia, this means a lot! Have a great weekend! Marcus
Marcus, two very contrasting interpretations of this week’s challenge. Considering the tension in the world today it seems as if the guard with the rifle is more timely. The image of the couple is much more nostalgic and brings a smile to my face. I’ll take the second for the emotional side of me.
Thanks so much, Tim, for your thoughtful words, this means a lot! Have a great weekend! Greeting from AMS Airport on my way home. Marcus
Marcus, I hope your trip was uneventful. Time to rest.
Thanks, Tim, for your kind words. Had some stress while connecting through Seattle due to a late flight, but they held the flight and I was home Saturday night. Yesterday was all relax under a warm sun 🙂 !
Marcus, you’re welcome. Flying can be such a pain. I know your pleased it all worked out well. Also good to know that you got some rest. The jet lag must be taking a tole on you.
LOVE the black and white! That’s a wall hanger. 😍
Your attention to detail is superb Marcus, thank you for posting. M.

Both are so great!
