Shoe Cobbler, Doha (Pic du Jour)

I’ll be heading back to Doha in 10 days where one of the most modern skylines on the planet doesn’t necessarily overshadow quite everything yet. Like this scene of a cobbler and a friend simply hanging out between customer visits.

This is near the center of the Qatari capital, just a couple blocks south of the sprawling Souq Waqif. I’ve compiled several image galleries from four previous visits to Doha; it’s easiest to start here.

Today’s Pic du Jour, the 349th straight (!), was snapped in Doha, Qatar, on 11 May 2014.
