    Lots of men with time to spare. At least two seem to have noticed me, one sitting near the left side, another with his hands in the pockets, just to the right of the centre.

    A view of a part of the city of Erzurum. I don't remember where I took this photo, possibly from the cheap hotel where I was staying.

    I just made some minor adjustments of shadows and highlights to make the details of the foreground more visible and the colours clearer.

    It was a difficult choice which photo to use as the official upload. True to my habits, I decided this would have to be the workshop since it doesn't have any human presence :-).

    Highschool girls in Maimana in 1973. I don't know if they were walking home together just for fun, or if being a crowd made them feel safer.

    From the market in Balkh. This is a rather heavily cropped photo. The strong contrasts were very unfavourable to the men who were standing immediately to the left

    From a brief break during my bus-ride from Kunduz to the major northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif. I was just about to get on the bus as I saw this nomadic family, probably on their way to higher grazing grounds for the summer. As far as I remember others were following with their herds of sheep and cattle, but unfortunately my bus was about to leave.

    A little girl from Kunduz, 1973. Every time I show a photo of children from long ago I - and many others - ask what may have happened to them as they grew up. Did they have a good life, did they have several children of their own? etc. Another question is: Do any of these children from long ago remember me? Do they tell their own children and maybe grandchildren that "one day when I was maybe five, a stranger came to this road and took a photo of me. I wonder whatever happened to him. Is he still alive? Does he still keep my photo?".
