Sucking down a cold one in the Egyption desert.

We thought we were in the middle of nowhere when we encountered this scene. No villages for miles, no clues as to how the boys got there. We approached these boys to find them uncovering an esky full of ice and 1/2 a dozen softdrinks -one of the few times where haggling over price was not performed.

    great story! I had a similar experience in the Italian Alps, of all places. I’m slogging along exhausted, the air thin and getting thinner, nothing but whiteness in all directions – shawhouse, intrepid explorer blazing trails. A guy walked by in a business suit.

    I love the treatment. Stunning b&w and economic vignette. wonderful image.
