    Looks like fun, but it's not. One of the really sad images, of the realities in life.

    Great picture. Being slightly out of focus does not detract from the image at all.

    Very rarely an image can give me a pause ... and this one is certainly give me that .. perhaps the history and hard reality of it ... sort of a reminder some things we often take for granted.

    Quite emotional. As father of four this one rose tears in my eyes. And even more now when my younger son is doing his military service. He will be absolutely fine and only in modest danger, we still live in peace. But anyway reminds why we have military service and what we are learning there.

    Really, really sad one.

    ---------------------------------------

    Jack Bernard was one of the many soldiers leaving behind families to serve in Second World War, and on that day, was marching down a New Westminster street as the crowds waved farewell.

    Not content with being left behind, Bernard’s five-year-old son Warren burst free from his mother Bernice’s protective hold and chased after his father, fingers spread apart and arm outreached.

    It was at that moment that Dettloff snapped the now famous photo.

    The snapshot ran in the paper the following day and was soon seen around the world. Life Magazine named the image its “photo of the week” and other newspapers and magazines began featuring the photo as well.

    It soon become known as the Canadian equivalent of the famous V-Day shot of a sailor kissing a nurse in New York’s Times Square.

    Bernard then returned from war some four years later and Dettloff was there to capture the joyful reunion between father and son as well.

    I know. I was just dramatising it. As so many didn't return.

    Powerful. So much emotion, so much story, all captured in a fraction of a second. I love photography.

    These days it would be live colour video from a helmet cam or Google Glas-mask.

    This image is a stirring reminder that all of the technical aspects of photography that we obsess over so much here (e.g. sharpness, nailing the focus, etc.) all pale when it comes to capturing the "decisive moment". Thanks for sharing.
