Abayas for Sale

Kandooras yesterday, abayas today. Emirati women wear these black garments over their clothes when in public. Many of them, like these, are decorated with beads, patterns, and embroidery.

Last year I was in Oman, and while taking photos of some abayas on sale I overheard a conversations between young Omani men, "Why is she taking photos of an abaya?" I guess what's interesting to one is mundane to another. I wish I had taken more photos of the really "common" stuff during my first stint in the's a real window to life.
