Standing portrait of a Bedouin man watering camels at a well near Sharjah city. A man wearing a ghutra (headscarf) and a thobe (long shirt) stands amongst a crowd of camels. One camel is drinking water out of a leather water bag held by the man. A second man stands at the far right, half outside of the frame. In the background more camels are waiting for water.
