Catch of the day - an Egyptian fisherman's smile.

I saw this guy sitting with his friend in the old fishing harbour. He refused my request to photograph him so I walked away. When walking past again he gave me a nod, so I asked his friend again, (as he didn't speak 1 word of English). I told his friend he was a beautiful man & this was that split second opportunity I had. He wouldn't pose for me so this was the best capture I got, but I think it portrayed him perfectly and believe it to be a hear-warming image.
