A boy with a stone (in his left hand) confronts the heavily armed Egyptian military police at a barbed wire barricade just south of Tahrir Square. The road is littered with stones thrown by both homeless youths and SCF soldiers, who would also resort to tear gas and (on many other days) bullets.
A slightly cropped snap of a snap taken with a small compact camera. Unfortunately I made some very amateurish changes on an online photo editor to parts of the brightness of the image in a clumsy attempt to increase the contrast of dark and light. This is glaringly obvious on enlargement so I have posted a link to another readjusted image (very close to the original) with no more than 1% changes in brightness in any part of the photo instead of the 3% I used for this photo.
