Too much war and disasters for my taste but that's the news industry for you.

nice finding monty - love some of the pictures, but indeed there's too much war and disasters going on
Thanks for sharing monty!
I like this one* :^)
*Except for the Canon part :^(
I remember that photo. The photographer, Spaniard Emilio Morenetti was "2008 News Photographer of The Year". He lost a foot after the Stryker armored vehicle he was riding in hit an IED in Afghanistan. I also remember another PJ that was hit by a sniper in Afghanistan but kept shooting. Toby Morris was his name I believe.
Here are some of Emilio's photos. The picture of the Lawyer jumping over barbwire is probably his best known shot. Amazing stuff.
His personal website is no longer online.
I started doing the news page of a local photo forum so I have 30+ sources under monitoring. Quite a lot of weird things pop up.
once again nice findings guys
