The shopfront, Cairo

The shopfront, Cairo, Egypt.

An image captured as I wandered around downtown Cairo, Egypt.   I was drawn to the juxtaposition of the the brightly coloured, elegant,  figures of the shop mannikins with the somewhat drab,  crumpled,  appearance of the the man seated outside the store.     The lines of the shop window hopefully lead the eye to the man who,  although he is small in frame,  is I believe the key to the image.    The image wasn't changed too much in processing,  although I did remove a couple of unsightly discarded cigarette butts that were lying on the footpath!   ~KD.
