Photographer's Note

The Farmgate Café is located in the famous English Market, the best market in Cork City. The café is a nice place to have lunch or breakfast, with a view to the stalls. On the wall along the place, there is a collection of photos showing old trades, such as this cheesemaker. Coindidentially, this market is said to have the best cheese seller in the county. Actually, this was "my view" during breakfast; as soon as I finished my (delicious) scone, I stood up, found out I had to take the photo from a lower POV, sat down again and shot. I loved the reflection of the market structure on the image, the way it appeared on both sides of the man. There was no information about the author of the photo.
The building itself dates from 1786, though the origins of the market can be traced back to 1610. It was refurbished after a fire destroyed it in 1980. All kind of fresh food is sold there. The atmosphere is nice, and it's definitely a must see, though it can be quite packed with tourists.
In WS, views of the café and of the restaurant, where the iron structure reflected here can be seen.
This photo was cropped and the perspective distortion was corrected in Photoshop; postprocessing was quite mild after that. As for the asymmetry, I like it that way. What do you think?
Thanks for watching and for your comments.
