Photographer's Note

Two boys who stopped me in the old city of Peshawar and asked me to photograph them.

I was asked yesterday by jojay if there were any difficulties in photographing people. I'm usually quite shy in taking portrait shots but in Peshawar and most places I visited in Afghanistan I found nearly everyone was happy to be photographed. The main exceptions were women who shy away from cameras and in any case are often fully covered by a burka. Children up to the age of about 14 and men were easy and I sometimes had the difficulty of too many people wanting their pictures taken!
