I like how the perpendicular lines of the shoes in the foreground are repeated throughout this image. I'm also struck by this vendor making a business out of recycling tires, probably out of necessity. In America, recycling is more of a luxury occupation.
A man makes footwear from tyres at the open-air Ngara market near the capital Nairobi May 2, 2007. The Kenyan government receives millions of dollars in aid to fight poverty, but little of it is available to small traders unless they can put up collateral. But that situation may be changing as African countries follow the lead of Asia, where tens of millions of people have obtained small loans thanks to an explosion of microfinance operations.
