Photographer's Note

This is the alternate version of the former photograph from Meroe (I prefer horizontal frames though).
Camel men waiting for tourists near the pyramids.
A few tourists have just arrived hence the camel men' excitement.

'My camel is fast'. 'My camel beautiful', 'I give you best price. mister' - they shouted trying to attract the tourists' attention.

One more thing:
Contrary to kwekwekan's impression - the camel men were not saluting me. They were shouting and waving to a group of tourists who stood 50 metres away (see the third photograph).
Just the two closest to me turned their heads to me to see what I was doing.
I was not a part of the group. I came to Meroe solo on my bicycle much earlier and spent two days photographing and trying to befriend the camel people.

Pity I cut the shadows of the camels :-(

See my other pics from Meroe.
