    Very nice picture! I think introducing yourself is a great way to get nice pictures of people.

You wore a rim of mustard pollen around your nose.
Come sunset, everyone heads to the hilltop to take in the 360-degree view.

I found one solitary, quiet moment to capture this lone camel herder.
This is where the other Woofers and I went to have pizza parties on Sunday nights.
