The other side of things ...I don't know, everyone was nice enough. As for this guy, he wouldn't leave without having his picture taken with his two prized possessions ...his Kieserling and his bike. A very happy and chatty fellow, invited me home for dinner. Unfortunately I had to decline ...a missed opportutunity, I'm sure, but probably a good decision. I didn't want to run into the "not very nice". It was getting dark, the driver wanted to get home, and I really didn't want to walk back to the hotel.

A very friendly person who is really proud of his prized possessions. He looks very dignified and sincere. I like the color contrast between the white clothes he is wearing and the colors of the vehicle behind him. Nice inclusion of the people sitting in the vehicle. Good sharp image with great lighting.

I am not going to be surprised one day when you have a photo with the location identified at the top, "Moon, Visible Face, South East, Crater Tycho... " What on earth were you doing in Afghanistan? It's a wonderful photo, the subjects arranged in a line, "bike," "man," "Kieserling"...

Une excellente composition combinant ces deux moyens de transport et leurs heureux propriétaires. Une photo très intéressante.
Tu es un infatigable globetrotter!
