! ! Loving Life To The Death: Robert Capa

Behind the lens, the eye of the photographer;
behind the eye, the observer;
behind the observer, the immortal soul:

Robert Capa shot
(as they say) five major wars
as mankind’s record
of man’s inhumanity to man.
Finally, was shot himself.

When asked for advice
by a young photographer, he said,
“Like people; and let them know it..”

And so he printed out his soul.

like people, let them know, good one.
This poem lens itself to the subject? David
....Ha ha. Groan....
What a well developed homage. I can't think of one negative thing to say about it. (Though it could have been a little more snappy?) Danny
