Here's one that I was really hoping would come together. But, in the midst of our patrol, with me driving a truck around this neighborhood, talking on the radio, checking the map for our squad leader, thinking as always about possible bad guys, trying not to scare little Iraqi girls, and occasionally running out to do the good-will thing, I just couldn't hold the camera steady enough. This was a bummer since I was so looking forward to giving away such a colorful flounder, especially to kids that live in such a colorless world.
But every once in a while, you just get a shot where just about everything comes together and you just kind of say, 'Yeah!' to yourself, happy to have recorded a moment in such a way as to almost do it justice.
