Pics like the Eddie Adams pic, the Kevin Carter pic, the Falling Man pic, etc. make one wonder why these so-called "photo-journalists" were adjusting their flash/focus lens instead of actually helping out. The Kevin Carter pic is the heights. While shooting that pic, he actually waited 20 mins for the vulture to spread its wings. I'm not surprised at all that he committed suicide soon after receiving the Pulitzer prize for that photo.

PS: That Einstein pic is a classic!
