What is it?

@Pep: Many thanks Pep! Its a Brick Kiln. Making bricks is big business so close to Kabul and all the reconstruction.

k@ from Paris, France

Your whole serie about the kiln (read your explanation on a previous post) is fascinating. Almost like a tale, a myth.

@k@: I think they must have thought it odd, probably the first time a westerner had visited the kilns, taking lots of photos and departing! I did go back months later and gave them prints, well the ones I could find. It totally amazed them :-)

Annierita & Annisabelle from New Delhi & Belle Ile, India

It was a long time I didn't come to see your photos, ( no time ...) but to day i enjoyed a lot the portraits of all those beautiful people and the images of the life in Afghanistan.
