Along about 1968 the Vietnam War was what occupied every aspect of the news media. There were hundreds of photojournalists that were embedded with the troops, many of which were killed. I remember seeing a picture at the time that just left me dumbstruck. It's one of those images that takes a second or two for you to realize what it's saying. I never saw it again.

I remember that picture very clearly so I tried to recreate it.

That's a great thought provoking image. It's an entire story unto itself.

Thanks, Mark. I'm glad you got it.

This image really made an impression on me many years ago and I thought that it would do the same thing here....especially when seen by so many photographers. So I'm surprised that it didn't generate more interest.

But, hey......

It did make an impact on me. But, I couldn't say anything that would do justice to it.
