What a town. What a people. Just follow the Nile, it's just about the only way there...
People are people, no matter where. This guy was just trying to stay "cool" in the shade.
Taken in a town four days drive south down the nile from Wadi Halfa, Sudan.

Hello John - Lovely detail in this shot. I particularly like the detail in the soft folds of the turban against the dark background and the light in the gentleman's eyes. Best regards Rosemary

A wonderfully incisive portrait of the fakir with that leathery complexion and a slight growth of whiskers. He has an amicable smile, and no doubt he was more friendly than threatening. Happy New Year,

A great portrait of this man. Fine detail in the skin and clothes. Well done for capturing the shiny eyes so well.
