Final hours & days
Back in Baghdad

Published photo

This photo of my father and sister was taken by my 13-year-old niece.  Two weeks ago, I submitted this photo for's "24 Hours of Flickr" project, which was seeking to compile photos taken on May 5, 2007.

On Monday, the day after my father passed away, I received an email from Flickr notifying me that the photo above will be published in the upcoming "24 Hours of Flickr" book! The photography bug has bitten my niece. She's getting full credit in the book, which will be published later this summer with proceeds going to charity.  I'll post details when I know more.
