15:46 hrs – Baghdad, Al Iraq

Posted on December 27, 2009


From a new project – 24 faces of the Earth in 24 hours.

The policemen came storming in the plaza, perhaps twenty of them. Despite their uniforms and silly hats they looked like all the other people, scared, disoriented, perhaps that’s why I lingered, holding on to my bag of groceries. I stood not far away from the large man, whom they had come for: he wore a bright red, heavy coat lined with white fur and he looked friendly, like God. I waved and he smiled at me before the paddy pack took him down.
