I shot this picture in Valletta (Malta) with my (at the time of course, May 2011 or so) brand new Sigma 30mm lens. And what better purpose to test a 30mm than some street photography?

I really liked this one. I found this carpenter's shop slightly hidden in a quiet street and asked the manin there if I could take a picture of him. I really nice man I have to say.

What's a bit sad though is that he asked me for a copy (real one, not digital) and tried to send one to him (generous as I was I had two plus an extra pic) but my package got returned to me (I really had trouble figuring out his handwriting you know). I guess I have to deliver the copy personally next time when I visit Malta.
