Description

View of locals in a suq (market) in the city of Dubai. In the foreground a middle-aged man and two boys walk along a covered thoroughfare in a market. On the left two women sit in the shade beside an 'arish hut. Further back a crowd of people gathers in front of a large stone or coral building fronted with a large canopy covered with palm fronds. Many market sellers sit in the shade on the right, opposite the buildings, while purchasers stand looking at the merchandise. In the right foreground a man sits beside a basket with a large pile of herbs spread out on a blanket in front of him.
