View of a young man on the beach in Dubai Creek. In the foreground a young man wearing an undershirt and a wraparound skirt stands in sand beside Dubai Creek. All around him dhows (sailboats) are moored in the creek and beached in the nearby sand. On the right a boy is climbing off a beached boat near to a woman wearing a black head covering. In the far distance one and two storey houses, some with wind towers (barjeel), line the far side of the creek.
