This photo won the World Press Photo Award for 2006. The story behind the photo is more complex than appearances suggest.
I met my friend the test pilot, who had just completed an around-the-world flight by balloon. With the pilot was a little girl of about two.
"What's her name?" I asked my friend, whom I hadn't seen in five years and who had married in that time.
"Same as her mother," the pilot replied.
"Hello, Susan," I said to the little girl.
How did I know her name if I never saw the wedding announcement?
