Old Highlander

I took this picture in the mountainous part of the Kamashinsky district of the Kashkadarya region of the Republic of Uzbekistan. Highlanders live here from time immemorial - men and women who have connected their lives with remarkable places, which are mountains. The old man, in my opinion, retained a clear mind and a proud character. This is largely due to his life in the mountains.
