    Out in the desert of Wadi Rum, Jordan, Salim pulled up on to the side of the road to see what we were up to. We told him we were making a film about the changing lives of the Bedouin. "I am Bedouin" he replied. "What's wrong with her?" we asked, pointing at the camel. "Nothing", he replied, laughing. "I'm taking her to town. She has a date". He winked and smiled, rolled up his window, and drove on.

    What a fantastic and amusing moment that made me smile. I love how you composed this frame, getting down low to hide the camel's body, which further emphasizes the surprise of its neck and head popping up from the truck bed — and you are cleaning your composition (eliminating the truck cab coming through the camel's head). Also thanks for taking the time to share the story behind your photo, which made me love this frame even more. Well done Matt!
