Photographer's Note

This is a person I spotted when walking through some of the older parts of Cairo. Somebody told me he was working with alabaster. This was a fast shot, I just pointed my camera to the door, took a picture and went on, as I was in company and in a bit of a hurry. I got pretty bad exposure since part of the wall outside got in the picture and that was a lot brighter, so I hope you excuse the poor quality. I converted to B&W to emphasize that this guy was all covered in white and to make the foreground less disturbing. What I think is funny is that there's a guy with a shisha in the back, I guess there wasn't enought dirt in the air for him already :).

I posted the original in color for Jose as a workshop.
