In the artist's own words: "I took this photo upon departure at the Nubian village that's located by the Nile river. I was really tired after walking for an entire day. By the time I was about to get on the boat to head back, I saw this man who was finishing up his work in front of the beautiful Nile river at sunset. He was ready to go home and rest just like me. The moment was very resonating, and I took the photograph. The static beauty of the Nile is perfectly captured in this photo through the calm water, resting moon, orange sundown and the tired Egyptian man."
