At the site of the pyramids are seemingly hundreds of people trying to get you to ride their camel, horse or donkey. This guy was trying his luck with me but with no success. Failing that he wanted me to pay to take his picture. No luck with that either. I snapped this one with the camera at my side, capturing him unawares and achieving the low angle of the shot.
To be fair to the camel owners though, I have to say that I didn't receive as much hassle as I expected. I was approached quite a lot but most of the guys quickly accepted my polite refusal.

Jonathan, j'aime l'expression du chameau et du chamelier. Les couleurs sont celles des pays de soleil. Bien vu !
