Photographer's Note

Not quite like the famous photo by Steve McCurry of the green-eyed Afghan girl, but another Afghan girl this is, and this photo is even older than his.

This is from May 1973, taken in the garden of the great blue mosque of Mazar-i-Sharif. I used to go there regularly to see if there was anything interesting going on. The children playing there recognized me and came running, asking to have their picture taken. This girl was a bit special with her short hair and tomboyish look, brave enough to place herself in front of the boys.

This was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
