The spy, Amber Palace, Jaipur, India, 2008

The three story gateway to the palace features a sole window for women of the court who were forbidden to be seen by men. Today anyone can peer down at the crowds below. The sight of the silhouetted head is incongruous, particularly when it seems to be looking in two directions at once.

A nice metaphor, Tim. And that head really does seem embedded here -- framed and all.

The head embedded in architecture - reminding me that all of this came from the heads of humans.
