This is worth looking at!

I uploaded this picture to Convivio earlier today, and I recommend it to one and all. It reveals a lot about the people involved in the photograph, as well as the culture of Islamic countries -- specifically Iran, where it was taken.

I love the picture. I wonder how I would feel about someone--a stranger--taking a picture of my daughter. I suppose in Iran whatever resistance I feel would be magnified by several times. There must be a challenging tension built into us humans between a desire for privacy (and maybe an associated desire for control), on the one hand, and an openness to others, a desire to connect with and share with others, on the other hand.
