There’s a great photo blog put out by the New York Times. Today, there’s an image of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran kissing a baby with flower petals swirling in the air. If I only could be in Iran to get such a photograph.
For some people getting into Iran can be tough. Even if you have the necessary visa and passport, the government officials can deny you entry. You also may have a tough time getting out. This is what the state department says. Who knows if it’s accurate.
The two places I would like to photograph most–Cuba and Iran–are tough spots. Perhaps one day I’ll get to either or both of them.by
