I have recently returned from a lovely half term holiday visiting my sister in Dubai with my family. A bit of winter sun was just what the doctor ordered after what I think we would all agree has been a pretty miserable winter. As ever, wherever I go a camera comes with me. I didn’t take much kit and I didn’t take loads of photos but one day some workers came to dig a new bore hole in my sister’s garden. I couldn’t resist asking them each for a quick photo. Since moving back from Bolivia nearly five years ago now I have missed this type of photography so it was nice to take these. I was struck, when looking at these images when I got back, how seriously they all took their very brief photo shoot – particularly the first image here.
