John Shearer, RIP
« on: June 29, 2019, 08:44:33 AM »
John Shearer was the photographer who took perhaps the best photo of John-John saluting at the JFK funeral. One of the most famous images of the 20th century. Although others also got the shot, his slightly overexposed grainy shot was epic, and caught the sorrow of the moment like no other..



 Extensive obit write-up in the NYT.

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.
