I came across this wheel and tyre shop while strolling around the back streets of Cairo. The ground around here was strewn with new tyres. They were also hanging on the walls of the small office as well as stacked on the roof. The guy was happy to pose looking out of the office window while I took this shot.

I like this one very much, Jonathan. I like the darkness in the inside of is "office" and the excellent light on the outer wall. This guy probably knows something about tyres and about decoration. Very good compo.

Hi Jonhatan, its a great shot. Very balanced composition, and great light. Did you take it on a alte afternoon? I like the colour contrast betwen the golden wals and the red wheels.

Salut Jonathan !
C'est tout à fait ça, des boutiques comme celle-ci on en voit partout en Egypte. Cette photo est particulièrement réussie avec le patron bien éclairé par le soleil couchant et bien encadré par la lucarne. J'aime ces photos qui nous donnent un reflet de la vie de tous les jours.
