The boys from Wadi Rum

I was in wadi rum this past week for a photo gig, while taking a break i spoted this group of young guys, asked if i may make a frame, they all said ok, they laughed for a moment when they saw the camera that was with me. They asked me if it was my gradfather's. What i was carrying was a medium format camera, i was looking at them through the waist level finder, it takes some time to get used to since everything is floped, plus seeing things in the square format also takes some time to get used to.

Enough of me talking, here is the picture.

Hasselblad 503cw
150mm f/4
Kodak tri-x

thanks for all the comments.
oleander, the hassie is for a friend who is kind enough to let me use it. He actually is the reason why i shoot and develop b&w film these days.

of course it's the photographer and not the camera that makes the picture, your work is beautiful.
