I'm in The Kingdom for a bit. It is not a photo friendly place over all, but I've found that most of the people are quite friendly and willing to be photographed when approached appropriately. Photos of females is however generally forbidden.

Here are a few shots for you.

Howdy Joel,

Man...you do get around (Madagascar and now Arabia)!

Good to see you posting again. Can you tell us a little back story to the travel?

I also enjoyed seeing these photos. I hope you will post more in the future.

One thing, image 3 and 8 seem to be the same (Young Camel).

Fixed that duplicate

Thanks Steady...I'm doing contract graphics for "an" oil company over here. I'm also working as a staff (internal) photographer..can't share those pics :-)

The camel pics are from a local camel market. The white camels are considered more valuable although I like the black ones and the very dark brown. Some are used as racers and some are used for food. I haven't eaten any camel yet but I'm willing to try it I suppose.

I'll post a few more soon. I don't have a very good connection here however.

These were all shot with a Leica M8 and 50/2 sumicron. The small form factor helps here. Saving the 5D2, etc for work mostly. And I LOVE that little rangefinder.

Hi Joel,

"Camel on a stick.."

Let me know how it tastes.

I can imagine a small form factor camera would be helpful in being discrete when out photographing the public. The Leica would do in a pinch.

The job sounds like a good one...and good experience for you...best wishes.

You could have color corrected a few of the pictures which have haze in them. I like picture number 2 a lot.

Thanks for stopping by all.

Here are a few more for you. And another point of information, this country doesn't issue tourist visas...only for work or Haj. I really feel quite privileged to get to take these and share them as well.

I have met and work with many very nice local folks here...the more I travel around this globe the more I find we are all quite similar despite our "differences".
