Portrait of a Bedouin family riding camels in the region surrounding the town of Al Hufuf, taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Al Hofuf to Ar Rumhiya wells. One man stands in the foreground, while behind him a man and two boys sit on their camels. In the distance beyond sparse tufts of vegetation dot a vast flat plain.
