A man named Mohamed walking through the Karnak Temple in Luxor, Egypt
On an adventure in Egypt, we wandered around in awe of the ancient temples. As I was looking up in admiration, a man shuffled past me. I struck up a conversation, and asked his name. Mohamed. Because of the language barrier we didn't have a very long conversation. Light beaming through the pillars, he shuffled slowly back through the temple. I snapped a few shots of him during the brief quiet moment and instantly knew it was one of my favorites from the trip.
