Photographer's Note

The main road across the north of the Sinai Peninsula runs between Rafah, at the border of Israel and Palestine in the East, and the Suez Canal which separates Asia from Africa in the West.

Travelling back towards the canal in the hot dry heat it was a pleasure to see such mouth-watering melons on offer on the roadside. Where they were grown I am not quite sure. Surely not from the trees in the local parched sands? Further west along the banks of the fertile River Nile perhaps?

I wish I had asked..

But it wasn't the melons that this young man was so determined to show me, for he had a little green garden growing in the dry desert sands on his left hand-side.

And very proud he was. Feel free to look at the workshop picture.
