One Day on Earth

The World's Story is Yours to Tell

I submitted two photos taken on 11.11.11, both of a Vietnam Veteran named Jack. He sat in his wheelchair on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, Colorado, USA, holding a sign that described his experience and needs. I noticed how kind he looked and stopped to say hello and give him some help. In exchange for a portrait, he asked only for an iced tea. Jack told me he had been stationed all over Vietnam, including "The Hilton" - the notorious prison where many American soldiers were kept.

Thanks for the opportunity to open up and capture a little bit of the world on this beautiful day.

Wow. Great B&W. His face could be anyone, but then I like how the wider color shot reveals him.
