Just back from Abha in the Saudi highlands after a fun day of shooting. Did a long lunch on cushions beneath a beduin style tent and made it to an ancient palace on the outskirts of town where Ali, our local guide, had arranged for its custodian to meet us in traditional dress for some photography. I like these two behind the scenes pics for their candid nature (below): The first of a proud son preparing his father’s Shumaq (head dress) for the shoot. In the second, two old friends after the session sharing a mint tea. Happily, the assignment’s developing a rhythm of its own (dare I say a Saudi pace) which is proving enjoyable as well as productive.
Flying out to our fourth and final location tomorrow. I’ll post a preview of the 30 best pics at the end of the shoot.
