Distressing

This image has haunted me for a while... and I struggle slightly with my decision to submit it. The female in the portrait was aware I was photographing her but still this doesn't sit comfortably with me... Such a tiny little person in a chaotic souk in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia - life goes on so quickly all around her. Does anyone see her? How did she get there?
