Taken at Ibra Souk, in Oman. There are lots of stalls like this on the pavement with women selling material for traditional dress.

Seems like the woman becomes a part of the colorful array of colorful cloths around her. the head backwards, yet the hands and body in front, create a very interesting composition. Thanks for sharing with the Art of the Middle East group.
totally love these colors I was at the thrift store the other day and saw some rainbow fabric though it would be neat to buy just for a pic what do you think? your mind is thinking the same direction ;-)
Thanks Misty for your comments, I know what you mean, have thought the same thing myself and other people will just think “why would you want to take a picture of that!”
I love this photo, I love fabric and look forward to searching all over world for beautiful pieces! I need a visit to Muscat soon :-) Great pic…
Thanks Keryn for all your comments. If you do visit Oman, take a visit to Ibra souk where I took this pic, it is a fascinating place. They have women only section as well where they sell make up and embroidery for their clothes.
