A man and his rooster (Sharif El-Hamalawi)

Author Comment:

I took this on the street La Habana as well. I liked the antagonism
between the fiction of the figure on the right and the reality of the
live of this man, displaying his rooster to get a few cents from
tourists passing by. The picture also expresses the abundance of thime
for the subjects involved. Life appears to be made up of waiting for
them. This wasn't even a particularly frequented spot so not many
people could be expected to pass by there. But still this man can do
his "job" from his windowseat which doesn't sound too uncomfortable.
