Photographer's Note

While going up the Swat valley of northern Pakistan in May 1986 I was held up for an hour or so by a truck that had overturned and offloaded its cargo of bricks all over the road. Some men from the nearest village arrived to clear the road. When they had finally finished, and managed to get the truck back on its wheels, someone brought out a gun and fired merrily a few rounds in the air.
These days, sadly, people are shooting at each other in the Swat valley, once known as the "Switzerland of Pakistan", where a mini-war has been going on since last year.
This picture was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
In the workshop you can see the same scene from further away.
