21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Driver of fiaker in Vienna, taking a break from working.

The image tells a story about a tired driver on a horse-drawn four-wheeled carriage in Vienna. He is taking a little bit of a break. The way he is dressed, with a combination of the old-looking carriage, and the old building behind makes it a little hard to tell when the photo is taken, is it in the way in the past or now? The interesting fact is Hermes (that is written on the building), which is a firm opened way in 1800's and the logo is a horse with a carriage and a guy which makes a perfect coincidence.
