These pictures of the Isreali assualt on Gaza were taken today by Jeff Neumann from the Egyptian side of the Rafah crossing. A sky like this makes you understand why they’re fighting over this land. The first pic is of a bomb dropped by an F-16. The second pic is of an F-16 that drops bombs. gazablast-1-of-1jet-1-of-1

A friend of mine is writing a paper on images from the War on Terror and asked me to send some over. I remembered Chris Hondros’ stuff from Tal Afar, Iraq, 2006. US troops fired on a car for not slowing down. A family was in the car. The parents were killed, but the daughter survived, forever scarred. No one wants to look at American kids killing a family. Yet this has happened thousands of times in Iraq.

John Lacroix is using my Obama photo as a banner ad. The shot, taken at a party fundraiser in New Hampshire, January 2008, only took me waiting for about 15 minutes as he worked the crowd. Weird light on the event’s tent made it easy to take pictures.

Here’s a selection of photos I took at the Democratic National Convention. Yes, it’s a few months late, but I’m lazy. I did take some pictures of Obama, but these pictures omit the star and instead show the 80,000-man scene.

The stage is set for Obama and I’m sitting in the last row.

They had a bunch of “regular” people give speeches on the Jumbotrons. Of course, none were black. Most looked like this confused white guy, Obama’s target demo…

The Colorado sky at sunset streaked by a Homeland Security chopper.

“Take em and wave em!” said an Obama volunteer handing out flags and “CHANGE” signs.

T-minus 2 minutes to Obama…

JumbObama.

CNN glow…

Indie filmmaker.

After the speech, the Greco set goes boom.

They even has a floating camera, just like the NFL.

Tears of joy 1.

Tears of joy 2.

Walking out.

The end…

Boston.com’s most emailed story is the “Game 5 scene at Fenway” photo gallery. Of the 64 images showing the vibe at last night’s historic Sox playoff comeback, the above is by far the best. Still, the picture below—of the stands in full mosh—is pretty sweet too.
