View of a camel pulling a sesame press in the city of Sabya. In the foreground a young boy sits on the arm of a sesame press, which is weighted down with boulders. Behind him a camel wearing a hood is pulling on the arm of the sesame press. In the background circular houses with domed roofs stretch into the distance.
