Photographer's Note

"Trust in Allah, but tie your camel” Arabian Proverb

This is how we are supposed to think-like, but unfortunately we don't at all!

This gentlemen in the picture is an old sheikh and an owner of a huge palm oasis, in a village named "Al-Far'aa", located between Jeddah & Al-Madina Al-Monawara.

I was going through my usual 200km discovery trips around Jeddah :p and stepped down to some village, and start shooting, suddenly... An old sheikh yelled at me while walking towards me, he asked why am taking picture in his property, so I realized I've put myself in some situation, I immediately apologized and told him that I will delete all these images if he wish so, I suppose he didn't believe that I can delete an image on spot, and how would he know if he didn't use a digital camera before, anyhow, he said that he will let me keep the photos, only if I paid him SR 70/- (~ $20), I said fine, only if I can add his picture to the deal :D I got away....
