This photo was taken in the late afternoon at a main square in Meknes. The men sit at the cafes around the square and the women congregate wherever they find a place, on small steps or the bases of monuments. I was actually with a friend sitting at a cafe (where we felt very out of place surrounded by all the men but we had to eat something!). The women in Morocco didn't seem willing to have their photo taken, so I was taking photos of this little girl and managed to sneak one that included these two older women on the right. They were sitting there talking and not paying the least bit of attention to me.

Very well seen and taken image of three generations Emily - it is a very interesting study of dress and custom and their postures speak volumes about their age, experience and character - very well done.

That is the perfect name for this photo. I really enjoy the large arches in the background. The photo could be a little sharper but it is a great photo! JP
