Manipulated photos from world governments

After a suspected 'photoshopped' photo of Kim Jong-il was covered by the Times of London and the NY Times this week, I was surprised to hear today that an altered image was supplied by the U.S. Department of Defense to the Associated Press. 

A couple of these articles mention the recent Iranian missile test photos that were digitally manipulated. I'm wondering why the NY Times hasn't covered the U.S. photo manipulation yet.

This is frustrating as a media consumer but especially as a photojournalist. When photos like these surface in respectable news outlets, every photojournalist's credibility suffers. It sucks, but that's the way it is.

'Of course' she will vote

Silver Springs resident Gretchen Tally, 103, will likely be the oldest person who votes in Summit County this year. Here she plays the harmonica at her home as her dog howls in the background.

Dogs in costumes

Superdog and the skunk.

Yuri Kozyrev

My favorite photographer of the week is Yuri Kozyrev of Noor Images. I saw him show his work at the Eddie Adams Workshop last week and this guy has been on top of his game for a while now. See his work from Iraq.
