This photo was taken on the streets of Oran, Algeria. These sisters went to the market for their mother, the little one wanted her photo taken (Algerians are crazy about photos) but the older one was a little apprehensive, as you can see in the photo. So the little one hung her arms around the older sister and said – “it’s ok, shoot us”. :)
As an American I found it fascinating that Algerians go to the market daily to buy their food for the day. Their food is incredible, by the way, a combination of French, Spanish, Middle East, and African influence. Using fresh ingredients makes it all the more delicious.
