Great to see you’re doing okay and dodging bullets :-) Take care!

Anyone compare the similarities between Mr. Tomasevic’s sequence and that of Capa’s “The Falling Soldier”?

Although the seconds you spare to put on a helmet may save your live, the seconds you waste not shooting the enemy may give your comrades time to armor up.

Although had he have been hit, would we have ever seen this??

I’m surprised that insurgent(or I’m assuming multiple insurgents) had the accuracy to even hit that wall. For whatever reason, they still fire their AKs from the hip. That soldier had been strap on his gear. Can’t expect to get that lucky again.

This was one lucky young man. If he were my son I would still be crying and waiting until he got home!!!

Perhaps there were circumstances outside of his control that kept him from doing so.
On the photograph – amazing series and display of photojournalism

What makes it even more fantastic is that neither the soldier or photographer were seriously injured.
