Description

View of locals in a suq (market) in the city of Dubai. In the foreground a young boy in a light-coloured waistcoat and thobe (long shirt) stands on the right. On the left many people sit or stroll beneath a covered thoroughfare. In the centre left foreground a woman sits beneath a cloth canopy strung between two wooden poles. Her merchandise is spread out on the ground in front of her.
