A world apart
While blood on the sidewalk may seem shocking to Tracy residents it pales in comparison to events around the world. Imagine my surprise when I found that my commentary on the blood splatters wound up in the latest issue of Random Shutterings, a blog carnival covering the world of photojournalism. The second issue with my blog has postings from Anbar Province in Iraq, Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, Kampala in Uganda and Manila in the Philippines to name a few. It seems small in the global context with reports suicide bombing, homeless living in graveyards and children working perilous conditions just to survive. Some of the postings are graphic but well worth a moment of time to explore.
