The guardians

HFF from a very remote high altitude village in North Pakistan. The ‘fence’ is one side of a long vehicle suspension bridge across the high up headwaters of the young Indus River. The bridge has seen better days. These local villagers take turns to bang down the nails along the bridge bed every time a vehicle crosses. I see them as the gatekeepers of the village!

May your Friday be fine and cheerful, and your weekend filled with things which make you very happy.
