Photo Ledgend dies.


Taken from the Irish papers today.

"Photographer Joe Rosenthal who won a Pulitzer prize for his picture of six WW2 soldiers raising an American flag over battle scarred Japanese island Iwo Jima, has died at age 94. He died of natural causes in the San fransisco suburb of Novato."

Now I would say it is a great legacy to leave something of nothing of earth shattering importance but that touched many many people throughout the world.
Its certainly one photo that I will always remember and evokes memories of days when just causes and integrity were of a much higher standard and the causes seemed so much more real and neccesary.
I believe a photograph really can be worth a thousand words and so George and Tony and all the other warmongers please sit down today look at this photo and remember what the world did to itself once before.
Then dont ever let it happen again.

R.I.P Joe Rosenthal. Your Photo lives on.
