    Here is a useless info about Bedouin old customs.
    You know how older women in the Gulf wear a black cover all over their body, well the guys would not know how these women look, years and years of observations, men learned to measure beauty from their ankles.
    So by checking out women’s ankles men could tell how beautiful the woman is.

    BTW, Nice ankles (:

  4. I found a name for picture number 2:
    Nice legs and nails, some work and they will be more sexy, refer to Ammar’s blog for munikar and bedikar tips

  5. You really love those shoes, dont you? :)

    I suggest investing in some Car Shoes by Prada. They’re great!

  6. LOL, funny. The way I see it is dirty sneakers, cargo pants–> who wants to fight?

    I really like these pix too Roba. I’ve come to peek at them twice. They have an almost iconic property about them. They have a “character” quality that reminds me of Naji. We don’t need a face … there is something complete conveyed by the presence of the shoes alone. I’m sure the pants contribute as well. You could do a whole series of these “shoes” seeing and visiting things all over Amman, Jordan, the ME…the world and it would be wonderful. Seeing it from the “shoe’s perspective” too (the low angle) is also really fun and unique. Keep up the great work. ~Jeff
