Security wall mural, Sadr City

AP caption: “A painter decorates a security wall sealing off the southern section of the Shiite enclave of Sadr City in Baghdad, Iraq on Wednesday, Aug. 6, 2008.” I love the particular choice of scenery, which I’d guess is as foreign to Baghdadis as … well, as this particular type of wall itself.
