    Quite a few spring to mind but I really don't want to remind myself of them so I'll go for this one:

    I think the image I’ve considered most humbling has been pretty consistent throughout my life. Specifically, the ‘pale blue dot’ captured by Voyager 1 when it was at the edge of our solar system; in cosmic terms, that distance is meagre and paltry yet we’re so infinitesimal. It puts every other image of horrific acts or suffering into perspective for me.


    I'll merely link one of the many examples rather than in-bed it: http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs4/i/200...e_Blue_Dot.jpg

    All of the same man. I cannot imagine a more horrible experience.


    (The cage in the 4th photo was found, complete with other torture implents in a empty, blood stained house by US soldiers during the Second Battle of Fallujah, a month later.)
    His face in the last picture brought a tear to my eye.
    Who was that man?

    I remember seeing photos like that on the front page of the Daily Telegraph the day afterwards, in the school library. I'd just started 6th Form and it brought me to tears - the thought of them being in such a horrible situation that jumping out of the window of a skyscraper was better than staying within. I thought that too when I saw it live on TV the day before. Unbearably sad.

    For me, without a doubt it has to be this one. It really does tell a thousand words
    Christ that's horrible; it looks like the kid's gonna get eaten alive by a vulture.

    Your signature picture is too long, its causing the whole page to go bonkers. Put it in a spoiler or something.

    You want photographers to help out every poor person they take a picture of?
