Photographer's Note

Back to Pakistan for this shot and probably a few more as I've now got round to sorting out my photos properly. There will be more from Afghanistan later.

I saw this old guy on the streets of Peshawar and was fascinated by his beard. I had to have a photo. But when I looked at him it was clear he wasn't going to let me get close up. The best I could do was to "shoot from the hip" from where I was. The original shows a much wider scene in the street - but with some severe cropping I get a pleasing portrait. I will post the original to a workshop so you can see what I mean. As I cropped a lot, I had to post this image a little smaller than usual to retain sharpness.
