Today’s daily feature travel image from the Middle East is a shot of a Jordanian man wearing a Keffiyeh shopping for goods at the market in Amman, Jordan.

While at the central market in Amman (also known as a ‘souk’) I encountered many distinct faces wandering through the crowded aisles.

Men yelled out trying to sell lush produce, dates and other items.

Often it was challenging to move as crowds and commotion brought movement to a standstill.

In order to capture photos, I often just lingered behind our group and rested anonymously at the side of local stalls.

As tourists we were offered items such as water and cigarettes; however, the hassle level was relatively low compared to countries in SE Asia.

I was able to capture quite a few candid portraits during our brief time at the market.
