A moment of peace by Kyle Jerichow

Currently unavailable for purchase

Taken on mission in North East Baghdad.

We had been called in as the reserve element and took up a blocking position at a major intersection. After we had been there for a while, we were told that we should start a security plan becuase we would be there for at least 24 hours. This solider took a load off and took off his helmet next to a door that opened into a court yard.

It just presented such a great shot that I couldn’t pass it up.

Used only natural light.

Taken using an Olympus Stylus 850 SW

Specs: f/3.5, 1/25, ISO 200

    Superb image – it seaks volumes. The use of the beam of light stretching from bottom left adds a potential exit to the picture – slightly abrupt as it exits mid right, which I guess sums up this guy’s emotions knowing things are going to get full on as soon as he leaves this moment of sanctuary.
