The first is a gardener at a guesthouse in Kabul. The photo was take over the shoulder of the driver and escort while we were waiting on the person we were picking up there.
This one was taken while I was sitting on the steps of the house where I was living waiting on transport to arrive. The boots for the guards were lined up under the shed they have for shelter and a stray ray of late afternoon sunshine seemed to be spotlighting them.
Finally I have been hearing the “ice cream truck” tune for a week or so and finally saw one of the sources. This photo was taken from the balcony for the second floor of the house where I now live. It is a bit scrunched in terms of framing because I had to shoot through an opening in the metal grilling that surrounds the balcony.
