Camel Market Kabul 1973

Camel Market Kabul 1973
Another weekly image from my archive. Click on it to make it larger.

By now you will recall that we visited Afghanistan and Pakistan sometime in the early 1970s.  I think it was 1973 but no one can really remember.  We went one morning from the hotel down into the town center where this was taken of the local camel market.  They are ungainly beasts and I recall thinking that camels have these enormous tongues.  We were offered the chance to sit on one and we did although you will have to wait to see that image!

In addition to the images I've posted on Flickr and those I've periodically posted on PND, I have now produced a Big Blurb Book: From the Archive 1960 -1980 of some of the images I really thought were special.
