Deflated


I love photographing camels. They are extraordinary creatures who are both so foreign and so expressive. I have a great respect for camels and am careful never to insult one as I've heard that they have long memories and are famous for carrying a grudge.

One picture captures the whole story--campfire, bag of equipment, working camels, resting camel, and LOTS of desert! Wish I could see it.

Great photo. The camel lays sprawled out just like my Golden Retriever. I've never seen a camel other than in a zoo; but I've heard the same thing you mentioned...and that they spit?

I'm always wary, not knowing camels nearly as well as I know horses and dogs, but I've never been on the receiving end.

Let sleeping camels lie, huh?
Very exotic, this lovely blog of yours. I enjoyed my visit here very much.
