Two Arab Friends
...at the ArabAmerican Street Fair on July 8, '06. I came upon a group of young women, some of whom were smoking a sheesha (hookah)--in public, no less (!) and were very enthused about having their photo taken. A photographer's dream! These two friends were among them and posed for me spontaneously. Note that they are both wearing traditional Arab kohl on the insides of their eyelids... I thought both of these women were Palestinian; the one on the right is wearing a Palestine lanyard around her neck and the one on the left is wearing a Palestinian button, unseen in this shot. [edit: I looked back at my original shots, and the woman on the left is Lebanese; she's wearing a Lebanon lanyard around her wrist.] Two beleaguered homelands, now under attack...
