Photographer's Note

Remaining in Yemen in the relatively peaceful days of 1998.

There is not much to say about this photo from the market area of the pleasant city of Taizz, third largest city of Yemen, situated in the southwest, about two thirds of the way from the capital Sanaa to the main harbour of Aden.

I was just passing by when I decided to snap a shot of this crammed shop. The young customer noticed me and turned to greet me just as I pressed the button. Although I greeted him back I probably thought at the time that he had spoiled my photo, but now I am quite pleased with his friendly smile and gesture.

As usual I have scanned this from a Kodachrome slide.
