Today friends in the City Daily Photo Blog community are posting special photos from our cities around the globe to express our concern for our fellow CDPB blogger who has shared with us every day for years the beauty of the city and people of Iran's capital, Tehran. He disappeared on the streets of Tehran seven days ago and we are anxious to hear of his safety and whereabouts. Ours is a photoblogging, not a political community, but we must express our love and concern for someone just like each of the rest of us who shares one photo a day from our cities and enjoys friendship around the world. There is a tower in Tehran that a friend once told me Seattle's Space Needle reminded him of. So, from the Space Needle here in my city to the beautiful Milad tower in Tehran, which our blogging friend Amir began showing our community the construction of in 2006 and the lighting of in this photo in August of last year, I send my good wishes for his safe return and for the peace of the dear people of Iran in these present troubling times. Here is a green balloon for each day that has passed since we have learned of his disappearance. Similar balloons were let go all over Iran on Friday to express the Iranian people's wish for the right to peaceful demonstration and freedom of speech without fear of reprisal.
