Salalah corniche

Omani boys love football (soccer) and play on makeshift ‘fields’ wherever and whenever they can find flat land. This was taken at the corniche in Salalah at sunset. Most Omani boys seem to play with their bare feet regardless of the surface, and unlike some countries this has nothing to do with poverty – everyone takes their shoes off to play.
