Boy selling trinkets to the locals in a backstreet of Cairo.'The horse was shy and didn't want its face in the picture.

Hi Charlie,

I like these things about this image:

1. The light spotlights the subject

2. The colorful balloons stand out

3. The donkey cart (I suspect that is a donkey, not a horse)

Thanks Steady and Qwy.
Yes, it's a donkey. My brain thinks donkey and my fingers type horse (my analyst loves that about me ).
The shaft of light coming in from the left was quite narrow. I saw the possibilities and waited for the decisive moment. There, I used Henri's famous term- and I make no apologies for it .
Of course, the idea of waiting for the precise moment to press the shutter release has been around since the first camera shutter button was pressed, but good old Cartier-Bresson gets all the credit for it .
Charlie.

Thanks Zal and BB.
In the deep shadows of those narrow back streets, the shaft of light was something of an oddity. And then a bunch of brightly-colored balloons passing through the light just when my meanderings happened to take me there.... serendipity is a wonderful thing .

Charlie, you really have some talent huh? Maybe when you grow up you can be a photographer!

I love this slice of light and what you've trapped in it.

sure like what I see,,

definitely right place and time,,

can't imagine how out of place the cart and donkey would be here in our area,, would be so different that he would probably sell many balloons,,
