How sad and just typical of governments in this country. Its a good black & white image taken with excellent equipment and seems to me to portray the event of its era. Sad, but well captured.

Really tells the story very well - perhaps you could have moved a little to the right and capture of the sitting subject?
Photography is putting one’s head, one’s eye, and one’s heart on the same axis. HCB
K20D and various stuff.
