They’re shaping up quite nicely so far, but not sure how they’ll fair with the weather suddenly turning cooler.

In any case, I hope you have a wonderful weekend my friends.

It’s almost mid November and Bahrain’s weather is still in the 30s C. No wonder the plants are confused. The banana tree is showing a new crop, in November!

Although it’s Friday the 13th today, do have a fantastic and peaceful Friday my friends.

American Soldier

Some people say that you can’t tell a story with just pictures. I say if done properly, you can tell multiple stories and evoke so many emotions with a few good pictures. The mark of a good photographer is his or her ability to encapsulate that emotion in a photograph.

I think the series of “An American Soldier” which follows a young American man for 27 months of his life really encompasses that.

Brilliantly told. Brilliantly photographed.

This is how an American soldier is made.

For 27 months, Ian Fisher, his parents and friends, and the U.S. Army allowed Denver Post reporters and a photographer to watch and chronicle his recruitment, induction, training, deployment, and, finally, his return from combat.
