  1. The Crim must have been the Afghanistan of the 19th century. As usual your pictures are very special!

  2. That's an unusual pose Rob. Leaning on the doorpost in a relaxed manner, hand on hip, legs crossed and gazing into the distance, face shown in profile rather than looking directly at the camera. I like it.
