Last 60 with my 50 – Street Portraits
Let’s close the series of Saudi with the true protagonists of our adventure in the Kingdom: the people!
This is in fact more an exercise to win my shyness with one-on-one photography than a comprehensive collection of portraits of the people we’ve met. Below I have grouped the 8 portraits that close the mini-project ‘Last 60 with my 50’.
