Photographer's Note

Whenever I visit an Islamic country, I am always fascinated with the fact that no matter how traditional a woman is, being fashionable remains valuable for some. We saw some of the women with trendy purses (sometimes designer knock offs) with colour matching shoes/slippers, funky coloured veils, etc. It is fascinating to see.

Perhaps this comment may sound ignorant (on my part) to other people, however,this is the beauty of travelling -- learning about the world.

On the other hand, we westerners are bombarded with ads all the time about what to wear, what's hot and what's not. Thus, females and males even as young as 8 years old will spend much time and effort to look hip. When in the bigger picture, we can probably spend that time doing something more productive.
