View of locals strolling through a suq (market) in the city of Sharjah. In the foreground three men walk through a market aisle across a number of large pieces of fabric laid on the floor. A man crouches on the fabric in the centre of the aisle. To his left another man stands on a raised platform in front of a door. In the background people stand and chat in the market.
