Photographer's Note

This is from Mukalla in former South Yemen, on the Arabian Sea. The heat was oppressive when I was there, most likely at least 45 degrees Celsius. This picture was taken in the afternoon when the shades were growing long and the temperature was getting more reasonable, that is around 40.
Mukalla is a very old city with a lot of narrow alleys and small mosques, but the view of the sea was partly destroyed in the 1980's with the construction of a stone wall to protect the city from storms.
This is a scan of a Kodachrome slide. My camera was a Canon F-1.
