Photographer's Note

I wish I could have captured this image earlier in the afternoon. By the time I walked back(from the Monastery, 2 hour walking distance) to the main temple in Petra, Jordan, it was already close to sunset. This temple lies in the crevaces of huge rock formations and at sunset this particular area lacks light(especially for picture taking!). Nevertheless, when I saw this young boy selling his "Camel Rides" to the tourist I couldnt help being impressed how at an early age he is already a striving businessman. I also wish I could have captured the entire camel, but with the presence of so many people at that time, It was hard to do so!
