20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Girl Selling Souvenirs in Petra

A young teen girl is posing for me after covering her face for this photo. I was exhausted from climbing all over Petra's ruins on a hot afternoon and sat down on the black chair by her stand. We got into a conversation and she allowed this over seventy year old to rest. After recovering I asked would she would pose for a picture and she willingly complied, but not before putting on her hijab. I did let her see the shot before leaving.
