Photographer's Note

Good morning TE!
As a follow-up to yesterday’s post “before the battle – I” I send you the next post “before the battle – II”. Quiet original I admit…
When is the real “battle” you would ask? Well, can’t you see I’m trying to save time here?!
Anyway,
This photo was taken just when this Mollah (see B/W portrait from yesterday) was preparing his horse to start entering the game of Buzkachi.
I just played a bit with the sky to make it look a bit better than the original (too white, for me). I have tried to check the B&W version but I wasn’t so happy with it, if anybody wants to try, you are most welcome. I thought it was nice to show his red face due to the bloody cold afghan winter.

Have a good day!

Vincent

p.s. I’ll take more time to write about the Buzkachi a bit later…
