Legend.

I see courage, fear, caution, suspicion, anger, loathing, angst, alertness, and yes a smile, all rolled in one image. Each time a different image. And it is more than an individual's image. She speaks for Afghanistan and its suffering, how she must have held herself from even pouncing at the photographer (how Afghan's feel about the west). You can sense her warrior-spirit inside. The tattered clothes. The green eyes. Could just go on and on... The number of emotions she's holding inside her... amazing.

Puts Monalisa into the shadows. Wait, did I just see her breathe? I think so.

Down in the street little eddies of wind were whirling dust and torn paper into spirals, and though the sun was shining and the sky a harsh blue, there seemed to be no color in anything, except the posters that were plastered everywhere. The black mustachioed face gazed down from every commanding corner. There was one on the house-front immediately opposite.BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU, the caption said, while the dark eyes looked deep into Winston's own. Down at street level another poster, torn at one corner, flapped fitfully in the wind, alternately covering and uncovering the single word INGSOC. (1.1.4)
