Photo of the Day

June 26, 2018

Hump Day

Your Shot photographer Matt Pycroft was making a documentary about Bedouin people in Wadi Rum, Jordan, when a man drove by with a camel in the back of his truck. Matt recounts: "'What's wrong with her?' we asked, pointing at the camel. 'Nothing,' he replied, laughing. 'I'm taking her to town. She has a date.' He winked and smiled, rolled up his window, and drove on." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
