Standing in the Wind

Standing in the Wind

That's a dust storm coming on the horizon. That's
not aperson standing there either, which is why I
like the picture, at least a little. It's a scare-
crow, I guess. What it's scaring, I'm not sure.
What it's protecting from whatever it is it's
supposed to be scaring away, not sure. One thing I
am sure of though, is that it's looking towards Iraq,
just over the hills in the distance. So that may
explain something.

Taken behind the Baghdad Cafe, a few kms from the border of Iraq,
a days drive outside of Damascus, Syria.
