The Walker


Like someone from an enigmatic movie, an elderly man in a galabeya walks across the desert sand. Probably a rather routine explanation for his travels is that he is working as a watchman at the antiquities site on the hill behind and to his left, where the archaeologists have identified the ruins as being the tomb of a pharoanic queen.

It looks as though he has a long and lonely walk ahead of him.

He's not that far from the village, actually. It was just behind us. But it is astonishing the places that we find someone walking along in the desert alone. I ride out there all the time and encounter walkers all over the place.

He looks like a ghost out there on the sand. Wandering, looking for his lost home...

I can only apologise for cutting and pasting this comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise. I have only one pair of hands and no team of magical elves to help me.

Anyway, from myself, Henry and Ezra, have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus and a happy New Year!

I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs and all your presents are spectacular.
