There's something I love about this image.. the light, the fact I randomly stumbled across this roadside pottery place, the calmness of the man, the Arabic plates on the wall.. together it defines the ironic serenity of a place that is known for its instability and violence.

More to come in my blog whenever I get the chance to edit all my pictures :)

Stunning work! The light, the gradient up top, the composition...everything whispers serenity even though it should be screaming madness. I love this.
