Photojournalist Bill Biggart was covering the events of September 11th and was Tragically killed as the second tower of the World Trade Center came down. Four days later Biggart’s body was recovered from the rubble and his personal effects, including his cameras were given to his wife. Biggart’s widow later handed over the camera bag to a good friend and fellow photographer. She was convinced that no pictures had survived because the falling debris had blown off the backs of the two film cameras and the lids of the film canisters had been peeled back. His friend turned his attention to the digital camera that was covered by ash. The lens had been sheared off but when he opened the chamber that held the flash card he discovered it was in pristine condition. The card contained 150 pictures including the last picture taken shown above which is time stamped 10:28 am and 24 seconds. The time was 10:30am when the second tower came down.
Interesting Fact: When Biggart’s wife reached him on his cell phone shortly after the first tower fell. He told her not to worry, and would meet her in 20 minutes at his studio. “I’m safe,” he assured her, “I’m with the firemen.” It was the last time they ever spoke. About 20 minutes later, the second tower collapsed

..exemplul de mai sus se multiplica in fiecare clipa ....de multe ori ...!
rolul social al fotografului mereu prezent acolo unde se intimpla ceva este esentiala si parca altceva decit schelelaitul neputintei si ignorantei trufase a latrailor de pe la noi .

citat cu copy/paste dintr-o scrisoare ...multzumesc nicu

a strecurat un mic dezacord intre "rolul social mereu prezent" si "esentialA" .

Dupa cum stiti rolul este esential ...

Probabil ati vrut sa scrieti mai multe si mai repede referindu-va la prezenta esentiala ...
