We were visiting a historic site near Dushanbe, Tajikistan’s capital. I noted a young couple, she in her best dress of brightly-colored silk ikat (trousers and long shirt), he in modern jeans, being very attentive and helping her over rough spots (much more than she needed helped). They were very obviously, very much in love. When the rain started, it provided an occasion for them: they sat down in the grass, cozily huddled together under an umbrella.

There is nothing posed here – I encountered them just like this, and they didn’t mind being ‘caught’ and having their photograph taken.
