Embedded 2...

Another tiny story gathered by the Washington Post photographer Jahi Chikwendiu. The photographs are beautiful, even though there is a lot of blood and tears. And again, it is the slowness of it all that somehow makes it more digestable. It does not feel like a sports event, there are no flying logos. Car bomb explosion. I looked at the picture with my sound muted. Listened to the story while looking at the last photograph in the gallery.


I often think still photographs can convey more emotion and provoke more thought than moving video ever will. Those photos are so full of information that you'll never experience on CNN or any other news broadcast. Thanks for pointing those out.

I agree. These photographs just have so much dignity and real human emotion in them. Video still somehow reminds me of a guy moving three little cups very quickly and asking me where the little ball might be hidden. The brain seems to be busy with so many other things than thinking when the images are moving. I guess this explains why the moving pictures are so successful?... What was I talking about? : )
Thank you for the kind words, Bill.
