Full length portrait of a man standing in a Dubai street. In the foreground a man wearing a khanjar (dagger) on a belt over his thobe (long shirt) pauses on a Dubai street next to a tilting fence made of palm fronds. The man has his hands at his side and is leaning on a camel stick. In the background a high tower rises above the fence behind him. Further back another man stands in the street.
