Quarries men

Shot at one of white limestone quarries in Minya, Egypt. I photographed the last phase of making and producing the white limestone. It's called filling time. The workers are filling vehicles with the white stones for trading in the market. Each stone must be in place beside the other, side by side. He is in hurry to fill the vehicle with thousands of stones.
