Right time, right place?

Vegas fire

Jerry Gallegos‘ image of smoke billowing from the top of the Monte Carlo hotel and casino in Las Vegas manages to get the event, the setting and the drama into the one image. This picture was one of three from Jerry that were used on the Reuters wire.
What are your thoughts on this or any of the other images in our You Witness slideshow?


That is what photojournalism is all about isn’t it? Being in the right place at the right time and hoping the image will tell the whole story loudly and clearly without words as not everyone speaks English.This image manages this goal well.
Good luck with the blog as it will be interesting to hear what others think.
