Share if you find a photo or collection of photo's while you're browsing the net, i'd love to see what sort of thing is aestheticaly pleasing to our members :)

This struck me as one of the most beautiful photographs I've ever seen:


It's from an epic collection of thirty:

Sorry if this seems to hijack this thread, but
I was listening to the BBC world service last night and a speaker was talking about his collections of Photos from Afghanistan from the 40s to the 60s. He said that the hijab only came into Afghanistan in the thirties from India and then was only seen in the towns worn by women on formal occasions. It was said his photos depicted a very different society than what we are told was traditional in Afghanistan.
I don't know If what I have found here are from that man but there is much to ponder here.

I don't find any of the pictures that I have posted pleasing. I find them disturbing.

From the man who is often only remembered for this, which is also stunning.
