The Deserted Man

The deserted man
The deserted man

Mohd. Rafeeq, Pakistan.

I met him during my first encounter with the desert.

He sits here under the sun from morning to evening, checking and keeping the record of the trucks that comes to this area for sand.

He is the deserted man.

      Chair is for him to sit. That was his lunch time. So he was sitting on the ground.
      Thank you for checking out the series 🙂

          Your welcome.
          Btw your other website shows a white background only. Is it kept that way or am I missing any plugin?

            hmn, i am not aware of having another website… is there any chance that you could send me a link?

          2. trabloggerJuly 29, 2015

            I visited your blog @ https://nikibayard.wordpress.com/
            But I can also see nikibayard.co.uk associated with your name, which happened to be all white.

    Nice click. I suggest, Send/gift him a mask from online retailers..he is more likely to get silicosis (lung disease)

    I love these – they remind me of the “people of New York” series – it’s amazing to consider the variety of all these people’s lives… think of the things they’ve seen, the stories they could tell.

    Thanks for sharing.
