Local elders converse during a shura, or meeting, held at the Usmankhel Village, Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, Dec. 18,
2011. The men were gathered to discuss security gains in their area and Government of the Islamic Republic
of Afghanistan's (GIRoA) role in providing safety. (U.S. Army photo by Spc. Kristina Truluck/Released)



My military imagery is available for public domain. As the photographer, I don't have control over
how you may use it, but I ask that it be done with respect to the individuals represented here.

Wonderful shot, perfect time of day for a photo and a great moment- the suns position gives such a beautiful light to your subjects and the clear focus in the background and blurred in the foreground looks excellent, and the smiles are simply precious

What were they smiling or laughing at?

The elder was trying to spice up the shura with jokes and witty comments.

I'm unfamiliar with a shura. Leader of sorts?

It's usually a village meeting, tons of chai tea and food involved.  =D
