This guy sits at the front of the shop trying to attract customers to buy his freshly made bread.
Behind him, the man with the headscarf is baking the bread. He places the dough on the board that he holds in his hand and lowers it into the oven (behind the bread seller's knee). He slaps the dough onto the side of the oven where it sticks while it cooks.
The guy behind him in the corner of the frame is just playing the fool...

I like this shot, there are so many things going on in the background and it's nicely balanced. The bread looks good too! The only thing I would say is that I wish you hadn't chopped the front guys feet off.

Hi Jonathan, There are some middle eastern style restaurants here in Los Angeles. I do like their fresh baked bread as shown in your picture. I don't see their foot getting so close to their bread though :D
A good man in work scene. Good capture of the tradition, culture and the guy making face in the background. Nice clarity and good sharpness.

I really like the light in this shot. The main subject is well lit, with the secondary subjects progressively fading into darkness behind him, maybe hinting at multiple layers of culture to be revealed. The positioning of the 3 people is just right, and makes this a very balanced photo. Well done!

Very nice photo and good photographers notes. The flooring, wall, and clothing are all interesting. Great lighting as well.
