Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Cheryl Karmia

I was traveling by carriage through a rural market place in upper Egypt when I saw a woman sitting amidst a bed of green onions and lettuce. She seemed to make a habit of sampling her wares. She was pulling a fresh scallion through her lips as I passed by.

Location: This market was located in the Nile Valley city of Luxor in upper Egypt.
