Default Kabul,Afghanistan

Here are some of many images I have taken here. Some were from moving car windows and some not. I have passed up many a good shot because I can't get out and start shooting pictures.

My pleasure, Here's some more. On these next ones,an idiot in VBIED exploded himself. It happened on DEC15, 5 blocks from where I'm living. The images were taken by a coworker who also works for company that has offices near the blast.

Thanks for sharing too. I see the countryside everyday, but was always curious to see what the city actually looks like outside the wire.
