Those pictures are hilarious! The captions make them even better. Been through every one and can't stop laughing. Sending the link to a friend who's a little depressed right now. He likes cats so these should cheer him up.

Brilliant as always, juju. Thanks for posting. And hal9k's wrong-thread/non-sequitur is the most ironic I've ever seen.

Heavy images!

The journalists who have the stamina, ingenuity and dedication to shoot images like that create such a profound impact on the world. There are a handful of shots, like the ones you linked in Contact Press, that were life changing for me. The napalmed children one; the MyLai ones; fireman at work; standing up to the tanks in Tiananmen.

Thanks for your post mjjj.
