I know the Saigon photo but I have never heard of the man. There's still much to learn, and very little time to do so. Too bad we often have to realise a (wo)man's work when we read their obituary in the newspaper. Too sad....
I don't use to read too many newspapers but last sunday my uncle came home with it and I found this on the weekend magazine.
Curious note, after he lost his leg during a battle short after this shot (no pun intended), Nguyen N. Loan (the Vietnam police officer shooting this Vietcong militian) moved to the US where he opened a pizza restaurant.
Supposedly the Pizza place in Burke, Virginia was opened by that Officer ~1975. They served square pizza, it was pretty good.
Unfortunately that link isn't working any more. :(
Nope but just found this one on PN, not sure if the pizza place is mentioned though :)
Yes, that was his Pizza Place. It was always rumored that he was the owner of it since the day it opened. He seemed like a nice person.
According to the article on that magazine, when Eddie was asked what did he think about Mr. Loan after seeing that, he replied 'imagine you're in a war and you capture someone who has just killed some of your friends, what would you do?'
Difficult answer !
But in the end, there's always pizza.
PS: And btw, that new avatar of yours is simply fantastic. I know from experience that is not easy at all to take pics of someone on a swing.
