Loading a Dhow

Mostafa and his friend lead a hard life on rough seas in a small wooden vessel. Dhows usually carry open cargo to African countries, Middle Eastern countries, Iran, India and Pakistan. Here you see some of the crew loading the vessel due to sail the next evening. Photographed at Sharjah, UAE.


  1. I LOVE LOVE this picture and the whole thing you have done, going and talking to them etc. You are becoming quite the photo journalist aren't you? :)

  2. Thanks Shaira, I liked going on board and taking pictures and meeting the crew who were only too happy to pose.
