Description

Close up portrait of a nakhoda at Dubai Creek. An older man with a grey beard stands in front of two beached dhows in Dubai Creek. He is a nakhoda (captain) of a dhow (sailboat) in Dubai. He wears a patterned ghutra (headscarf) on his head and a light coloured waistcoat over his thobe (long shirt). In the far distance one and two storey houses sit along the opposite bank.
