My last (and favourite) photo from my Afghanistan collection to be put on sale online

Tea time

Some of the best pictures and videos I managed to produce during my time in Afghanistan are of the beautiful locals who are proud of their culture, people and country. Out of all the photographs I have taken, I must say the one above  is my favourite.

Shah Mohamed, the tea stall owner was friendly although he didn’t speak English. He constantly had a smile carved on his face. he moved about slowly but you could see that he did his work with pride. His customers were served well and I’m convinced they were very relaxed at his stall because of his demeanour.

This is also the last picture from my Afghanistan collection that I will put up for sale online.

Watch an interview of Shah Mohamed in the video episode above of the ‘Guide to Afghanistan: The adventures of a KL-ite’.
