The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Just for Good Measure

The funny thing is, I bet that the soldier was just messing around with the photographer. I mean, it's not like this is the first time something like that's happened, is it? (See the second large photograph down.) And don't forget that Kevin Frayer was only standing about 2 feet from the other photographer, so obviously the soldiers aren't that concerned about not having their pictures taken.

An Israeli soldier blocks the lens of a photographer during an army operation in the Old City of the West Bank town of Nablus, Saturday, Jan. 5, 2008. Tens of thousands of Palestinians were confined to their homes and carefully rationing dwindling food supplies in the West Bank town of Nablus on Saturday, as an Israeli sweep for wanted militants entered its fourth day. Hundreds of soldiers patrolling on foot or in jeeps barged into homes and stores in pursuit of wanted men. Others took position on rooftops. (AP Photo/Kevin Frayer)

It'd be interesting to learn who the blocked photographer is. Either way, I'm sure somebody out there's going to be crying censorship any minute now, whether it is or not.

Could it be al-Reuters' Eliana Aponte? True, Kevin used to hang out with Emilio Morenatti. I mean he was there for Emilio's release from Hamas captivity:
And who is this? Rage Grandpa? Old Fart Rage?

Notice the two soldiers in the background. Those who truly want to not be photographed are wearing ski masks.
