Camels in Wafra

img_-085.jpg

While in Wafra I took my camera kit with me since its really nice just taking photos around that area. Turns out a friend of mine is also obssessed with taking pictures so we decide to head out in the Landcruiser and go see where we can take photographs. So we headed towards a herd of camels, taking photos of them and getting closer every 5 minutes.

I have to say that camels are one of the funniest animals I have seen, when looking at them I can tell they know exactly whats going on but they don’t care. The camel herder didn’t really mind what we were doing since we seemed harmless to him. There were at least 60 to 70 camels just grazing in that area, we moved around a few times to get the sun light in the direction we wanted.

After a little while we decided to get up close and personal with these guys. I thought at least 10 meters away to get the right photo, so I was behind the lens and kept taking pictures. Some of them moved away and some got closer. I was using a wide-angle lens towards the end and we kept getting close, I was getting some very nice pictures and these guys were just making me laugh. I could see my friend circling around and taking other pictures.

At one point my friend told me “Marzouq, the camel is 10 centimeters away from your lens”, but from behind the lens he looked like he was a couple of meters away. When I look up from the camera the camel was right in my face, curious of the camera so I kept snapping away. At one point went around the camera, and lets just say the big guy likes me. It was a fantastic day, and I really do love those camels.
