A bicycle bread delivery guy rides through the Tentmaker's Bazaar (Souq Al-Khiamiyya) in Islamic Cairo, Egypt (ARCHIVED PHOTO on the weekends - originally photographed 2010/10/19).

I recall I was doing a bit of experimentation with strobes on this particular day. I set up a bare bulb flash inside the dark Tentmaker's bazaar and tried to capture some bits of street-life in Islamic Cairo when suddenly, I was gifted with this gem of a shot. These bread delivery guys cycle in every street around Cairo, avoiding all manner of hazard, to deliver their carbohydrate loads. See a previously published days' photos for more on the bread delivery guys.
