Description The following is the author's description of the photograph quoted directly from the photograph's Flickr page.
"Gas tankers are a common target for roadside attackers. Big. Slow. Impressive fireworks.

They also damage the asphalt underneath the explosion. You have to slow down a bit over these sites.

This woman was sitting in the middle of the road in the middle of an explosion site. Presumably as cars slow they're more likely to drop a few Afs.

A woman in conservative parts of the country without male support can do nothing but beg to survive. "
