A couple walks together in Souq Waqif, a traditional-style marketplace in Doha, Qatar.  Qatari flags hang from the buildings, and there are restaurants and passersby visible in the background; the photographer has captured an unusual moment in a culture in which couples typically don’t embrace in public. This is a great photograph to use to develop story-telling or narrative skills in intermediate or advanced students: ask them to imagine the back story of what happened before and after the photograph was taken.  Relevant topics related to this photograph include: Qatar, souqs, markets, traditional clothing, and street scenes. >
