01.31.11 - MY EDDIE ADAMS MOMENT

It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but there was no intent to make my own version of Eddie Adams' Pulitzer Prize winning image 'General Nguyen Ngoc Loan executing a Viet Cong prisoner in Saigon.' But when I found these two upon download, I immediately thought of the famous shot.

Some might be surprised that I didn't know I had it on scene, but I don't spend much time chimping. And this particular set of children soon decided I was a good target for the snowball fight. The next pitch from this hooligan got me sqaure in the cheek. At this point I headed off to see what else there was to find, and didn't give this moment any thought for the rest of the day.

It actually wasn't until the next day that I got to see this. The card reader I have been using at the office has been having problems, and corrupts the second file on the card. It then requires 12 hours of Lexar Image Rescue to save the files. Needless to say that card reader is now in the junk drawer.

It could be a bit better. I whish I had focused on the victim instead of the perpetrator, but such is life. Tomorrow is another day.
