You might end up in one of these police detention.

Some nomads in Saurobi.
There's more than 2 million nomads in Afghanistan.
Sometimes they pop up in the middle of nowhere.
Kindda spooky.

Aitch, you have a real talent for portraits there 8) Fantastic photys mate. What camera do you have?

It`s hard to reconcile those images with the loss of life and reports of the hardest fighting the Corps has been involved in since WW II.
Well done mate :wink:
