It makes me feel...so many different things.
Sadness, because no one should feel that way.
Anger, because it's happening.
Confusion, because I don't know how it feels.
It's so...wow.
Good job on this photo.

"vicariously (you) live while the whole world dies, much better (them) than (you)"
I like you pic, but i have found that talk is cheap. pictures like this used to say something. Besides who are yo uto judge a culture older than your own. The evolution of societies says you do not have the ryt. let them fight for themselves and do not temp the public to interupt their battle. Iran for Iranians!

Nice shot, but I think you have the wrong views about women in Iraq. I'm Iraqi, and we're honestly not opressed. I hate that notion and wish people would stop stating it as a fact. You do get a few families who are very strict, but you have that everywhere.

It is.. amazing. When I first looked at it to my mind came thoughts of the women in Irag, Iran and in nearby countries who in a way do not exist. They don't have a voice, they cannot express themselves, they're prisoners. I know of someone who escaped from Iraq, she wandered across barren sceneries with another woman and a little child to get a better life. She says his father would've killed her if she'd stayed.

But also the personal level you of course put into this is worth saying something about: your eyes say it all and the blood (I see it as blood) is what actually caught my attention while browsing.

Very ominous yet very pleasing to the eye. Because of this - it reminds me of Matthew Barney's work. Do you know of him?

this one is entirely perfect... well, maybe except for blood which looks more like Kryolan stuff. but it doesn't matter. i'm stealing it. ;)
