This is another fine shot from almost half a century ago. The photo is in an incredibly good shape, looking like a digital picture from this year. It's a simple and enjoyable everyday scene. The last time I was in Kabul, in 2004, the river was completely dried out.

How great to see a picture from Kabul in 1964, eight years before I saw the city for the first time. I don't think there was much change in those few years, but now a view from almost 50 years ago probably seems longer ago in Kabul than in most other places on earth, considering the horrible and turbulent times that have passed.
This was indeed an ordinary day. Life goes on, some people carrying heavy loads, someone is begging for alms, most people just on their way to somewhere, one man climbing the steep wall from the river. This quiet ordinariness is a joy to watch, even more so thanks to the fabulously well kept and well scanned photo.

You're capturing well this daily life scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle in which the woman is sewing in the house. It is a spectacle seldom seen no longer in the present everyday life in Japan. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and excellent color combination. And, it's also interesting in wooden weaving machine at right side. It makes me feel the nostalgia.

You're capturing well Hanami scene of old times by a good composition and rich tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see the bottle of scattered beer/sake and garbage can. It expresses the social situation of those days well. It's interesting in the clothes of those who are coming for cherry blossom viewing, too.
