Weekly photo challenge: simple

In the album I found a few photos of Arabs snapped in the simplicity of their daily lives.  This one really narrows it down:  a shadeless desert, a man stopping to pray, a curious and patient camel.  Bowing over his mat in prayer, the Arab blocks out the Allied soldier behind the camera lens, and the complications of war.

  1. I’m glad you like the photo! I find it’s also a fascinating peek into WWII; usually we see images of Nazis in Europe or the Japanese in the Pacific.
