This was a photo I took of the equestrian statue of David the Builder. The cloud above looks like smoke coming from his hand. It was a lucky capture, I was on the minibus from Didi Dighomi to Didube. The statue is on the corner of D. Agmashenebeli Alley, the minibus slows a little to turn the corner, but there is no time to compose the photo as we drive past, just a quick click of the shutter and hope for the best. The windows of the minibus are closed and grimy, closed to allow the air conditioning to function but this gives a murky quality to any photo taken through them.

David the Builder  (დავით აღმაშენებელი)(1073 – 24 January 1125) is considered to be the most successful king of Georgia and the creator of the Georgian Golden age.
