Not totally photo related, not just a journal. A bit of both.

RIP Chris Hondros

A second photographer, New York based Chris Hondros, dies from wounds sustained in the same attack that killed photojournalist Tim Hetherington earlier today. The deaths occurred while they were covering the fighting in the besieged Libyan city of Misrata. Chris Hondros was a senior staff photographer for Getty Images. He was 41.

This is ridiculous this shows that now the situation in Libya i think these incidents will continue until Libyan government fell down international community should think on Libya how to solve this problem and surrounding countries of Libya have to try to solve this problem mainly the government immediately resign and put elections.

I work for Thomson Reuters and unfortunately I have seen my share of RIPs. I was going to say, “although these guys aren’t mine", but in truth, these photographers are "ours", they are our windows into worlds we cannot imagine. Their courage to enlighten and inform us is humbling. May their journey bring them peace.
