A Street Scene in Riyadh--Accurate or a Photographer's Composition?

I first saw this photo at Full Focus, Photos of the Week

For some reason it struck me as particularly natural, and probably fairly common, in other words, an accurate depiction of a street scene in Riyadh. 

However, I am not in a position to judge based on experience, so I would appreciate the comments of those in the know. 

Also, I wonder if others who have not been to Riyadh would also (mis-)take this as representative.

How about the one below (from this article on a report on the legal status of women in Saudi Arabia)?

Any other comments, reactions, impressions?
