This is a very stark image of those horrible years. I could not imagine being the man with the rifle.

..he has both arms & all his fingers...remarkable, and somewhere beyond, someone else with a gun, someone else holding a child, senior citizens, friends--from both sides--falling in love...your photograph tells of them, too and i feel so thankful, even as an amputee, I am thankful..i hope you are domcumenting life here,now, too, richard thank you

I'm so humbled by this brave soldier; he represents many, and I'm so very proud.

I almost missed it. Great shot with a good angle and the shadowwork does the rest.

Agreed with previous commenters - this one is the best photo. A truly gem.
Guest 25-Jul-2006 20:20
wow!!!
George - Omiros Christakos25-Jul-2006 16:25
For my opinion, probably your best photo. Speaks loudly by itself. Could be publishes as a cover in book against the war. Bravo Richard. GMV.

Was really weird out there at night by yourself

Good use of B&W, nice light and compo.

outstanding photo. all the elements in this photo really come together in a strong statement. that classic M-14 look really helps make the photo. had he been holding a M-16 i don't think it would have been as impressive. well done soldier!!!
Jola Dziubinska09-Dec-2005 19:38
Powerful, silhouette photo. Well done.
Gus Rosenfeld01-Dec-2005 12:44
Unfortunately, a timeless image. You can tell your eye was targeting substance early on. Good stuff - g
