After a two day gap in his Iran coverage, Toronto tweeter faramarz posted this shot on his flickr site. His caption:

“…calmly walking away after they break into your home and do as much damage as possible.”

What’s instructive about this photo — besides the tension and robo-intimidation in it — is that it’s necessarily clandestine. Did the photographer dare take this from his or her apartment?
