The one that got away…

One of the things that kinda bums me out about photojournalism is the photos that got away. Not the photos you couldn’t take because you couldn’t reach the location, nor the ones where you missed the shot by a mere second.I’m talking about the shot you had, but someone else messed up for you.

I was just thinking about this photo earlier today where this happened. Great expression on the guy from Food Not Bombs in the foreground, and the war protesters marching behind. However, a guy with a backpack edged in on the side and made the shot unusable, at least in my opinion.

Oh well.
