Wow, what a great photo, I love it, with the reflection of the disrepair in the window, the shop seems displaced yet very 'fitting' ;) they are so handsome too...

I think the mannequin in the window is funny - I mean how come in different countries the mannequins don't resemble more the peoples features there?

@Rabbit: There is no manufacturing base in Afghanistan so most goods are imported hence the lack of indigenous looking mannequins. They do stand out as looking strange especially as the styles of clothing on the mannequins are not quite what you see elsewhere. Particularly out of place looking are the female mannequins which are usually adorned by low cut wedding dresses - somewhat out of place in a country where all women are covered and many wear the all enclosing burka. Just a personal observation :-)
in the mind of your great reportage in this country, all your shots are very interesting
