A Word A Week Photo Challenge – Smile

Not very often you can make pictures of smiling ladies in Arabic countries. These shots are from the capital of Yemen, Sana’a, from the Jewish Quarter. And that is maybe the answer how I was able to see girls faces. I was thinking about the differences between people living in this place and me. They seemed to me to be much more lucky and satisfied, they smiled and laughed more … I also like the shy smile of young girls, almost grown up, surprised by all the people wanting to take their photo.

    These pictures remind me of the faces of people right at the start of photography when the camera was something they were still fascinated by – V
