Pic(k) of the week 43: Camel driver portrait
As promised in my post April 24, I went back to the Al Marmoom Camel race track just down the road from where I live in Dubai. The camel racing season is now just about to start and it felt like the camel drivers really enjoyed the cooler weather.
Especially just before sunset the place is full of activity with loads of camels being taken on the track for a walk or run. A perfect opportunity to photograph some of the camel drivers.
