Standing three-quarter length portrait of Mahalhal bin 'Ati, one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin guides, taken during the party's journey from Ramlat al Ghirbaniyat to Furai well. Mahalhal bin 'Ati, a tribesman of the Al Khamis lineage of Awamir Bedouin, stands in the foreground facing towards the left. He wears a cartridge belt over a light coloured thobe (shirt) and a thick ghutra (headscarf). In the distance behind him lies an empty flat plain.
