Bedouin at the Egyptian Pyramids

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by JD Andrews

I took this on my trip to Egypt last year in Cairo. As usual, I was taking lots and lots of photos when this man grabbed my arm and said in his broken English "take me" If you have been to Egypt you know that usually this means: take a photo of me and then give me money. I repeatedly told him I didn't have any money but he insisted so I took about five or six shots and then happily showed him this one on my cameras display, he smiled and shook his head approvingly.....and then asked me for money..... That was ok since I got, what I think, is a great Photo. :)

Location: Cairo, Egypt
