Welcome Home Amir!

Fellow City Daily Photo blogger Amir of Tehran 24 was missing for a little over a week. He had been covering the elections in Iran when his blog was blocked and no one heard from him. Some CDP bloggers found out he was detained in Evin prison. JM from Oeiras Daily Photo did a wonderful job keeping us all updated. The City Daily Photo group did a special theme day over the weekend hoping for Amir's safe return. Since I do very little blogging over the weekend I was set to participate in the Theme Day this morning when I read about Amir being back home! So I just wanted to dedicate my post today to a very brave blogger, Amir and welcome him home!

Visit Amir on his blog to see his amazing work and welcome him home, Tehran 24


  1. Yes, I saw also that he's back and free... but no new post!

  2. thank goodness he is OK
    I think of the people of Iran all day and hope for their safety and freedom

  3. Yes good news. I love the symbolism of the tree.

  4. Wonderful post, Tanya! Glad you have joined us!

  5. So scary. Isn't it amazing the freedoms we take for granted.
