Camera Lucida

Looking at the picture on p 22:

  • soldiers, guns, namely assault rifles->war
  • (Nicaragua)
  • rubble, aftermath ->destruction, depression
  • nuns
  • small village
  • trees
  • cloud?
  • ground, road
  • sandbags? = fortification
  • pile of bricks
  • pole–street light? telephone pole?
  • dictatorship?
  • why are there soldiers with heavy artillery next to the nuns?
