The world feels different today, which is November 17th when I prepare this post for you. Russia confirms that a terrorist bomb felled Flight 9268, while Western forces increase air strikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. That’s context for the street photograph captured by Bill Knock on Nov. 14, 2015, the day after terrorist attacks killed 129 people in Paris—hence the self-title. ISIS claims responsibility for both incidents.
Bill captured the moment using Sony Alpha a7 II. Vitals, incomplete perhaps because of manual lens: ISO 800, 1/13 sec. I can’t confirm that our self-described “non-professional photographer” uses his real name. Elsewhere, he goes by CBPhoto (Facebook, website). He joined Flickr in August 2010. Gotta say: His photostream looks professional enough to me. Do dive in.
