Arabian knight

Camel driver

This nomad in the Nubian desert played the perfect Arabian knight when I asked him for his photograph while he leaned against his resting camel.
He quickly wrapped his headscarf across his mouth and gave me a scowl.
I managed to shoot four frames before he mounted his camel and rode off across the desert. This was the only shot where he looked directly down the barrel of the lens.
Eat your heart out Lawrence of Arabia!
