We like the humor and surprise in this image. the well-dressed cyclist with a mirror, showing us more of the city. Remarkable photo.

Photographers Comment

I've taken this photo in Talaat Harb square in downtown Cairo in 2008. When I've seen this worker carrying this large mirror on his bicycle, I ran towards him as I knew I might get reflections if I got close enough, I was lucky that he waited for the cars to pass, that gave me few seconds to get close, use my wide angle lens, step on my toes and look down to get the most of the reflection, lighting was perfect, the sun was infront of me which meant that the building reflected will be bright while the man and bicycle will be darker. I took the shot and didn't have the chance to see the man.
