In September 2009, Shari O'Connell of Santa Monica was visiting the island of Djerba in Tunisia when she came upon this spice booth. "I took an early morning walk through the souk
and was impressed by the layout of the spices sold by one of the vendors," she recalls. "I returned to the same booth several hours later, and it looked like a storm had hit. The spices were no longer in their picture-perfect cone shapes but covered the floor, tables and even the gentleman who was selling them." She used a Canon Powershot Digital Elph, 1100 series, to capture the pre-shopping scene.
