Qatari children, Doha, 17 Feb 1967

Qatari children, Doha, 17 Feb 1967
I'm gradually reaching the last few old photos taken in Doha, Qatar, Middle East , back in 1966-67. This is a group of young Qatari boys who really wanted me to take their photo : ) They were near the camel and goat market. Scan from a print made from an old colour slide.

An excellent website blog about the traditional clothing of Qatar, through the Qatar Culture Club:

Excellent shot of the children Anne ... when I see these old photos, I always wonder what became of them after 45+ years ... they certainly were not affected by obesity. An excellent shot from your archives!!

Thanks so much, Art, though I posted these ready for tomorrow. You've already commented on enough of my photos today!! Yes, that is exactly what I always wonder, how life has treated them since, and is one of the reasons that I carefully remove every teeny white speck (and there were hundreds on this particular image!), just in case someone recognizes one of the children as themselves or a friend or family member. If they do, and want to download the photo, I'd much rather they had a photo without all the endless white specks. Obesity? I remember being told by someone who lives in Oman that the increased use of Western food in Oman (and I'm sure it's the same elsewhere), has meant an increase in overweight, less fit people. Such a great pity.

They should be grown men by now. Did you stay in touch?

No, this was just a group of children who suddenly appeared. They were not children that we knew personally.

Like Art & Janet I also always wonder about what happened to people in older shots. These kids seem very delighted to see you.
