My 15 day trip to 4 cities in Saudi Arabia

أول رحلة تصوير بعد انقطاع أكثر من سنة وبالطبع لايزال هناك الكثير أستطيع تصويره وتوثيقه في السعودية ولهذا قررت اعادة زيارة بعض المدن التي قمت بزيارتها لمشروع حياة الشارع في السعودية وهي الطائف وأبها ونجران، في الحقيقة نجران هي وجهتي الرئيسية ولكن قررت التوقف في أكثر من مدينة قبل ذلك.. في هذه الرحلة لن أقوم بالتركيز على جانب واحد بل سأقوم بتصوير حياة الشارع وتصوير قصة معينة والقيام بتسليم صور مطبوعة والتي إن أخبرتكم عددها ستقولون عني مجنون! لا أعلم ما يمكن أن يحدث ولكنها تجربة لا يمكنني التوقف عنها!

First photography trip in more then a year and of course because there is a lot to photograph in Saudi I decided to revisit some of the cities which are Taif, Abha and Najran. In fact Najran is my main destination but I wanted to make a few stops before that. In this trip I will do street photography, stories and deliver printed photos which if you knew how many are they you will call me crazy! But I can’t seem to stop doing that.

Extracting Oil the old way from Jazan

When I was on the road from Jazan to Abha I saw in the sideways camels circling around blindfolded with men guiding them. So I stopped my car and it turns out that they are extracting  oil by grinding it, the camel circle around pulling the wooden lever hooked to him plus a big rock in his back so he moves slowly,  all that attached to a pole of wood which is crafted especially for this task and this pole moves as the camels circle in a big wooden pot also especially crafted for this, it turns slowly for hours and grind the seeds into oil called (Smsm Oil) used either for food or healthy choices for woman which is very common in the Southern Region. Another amazing thing that the camel can move & stop by a sound that the owner make which something impressive!
