1. 94 and he died of natural causes,
not too shabby!
I remember visiting DC w/my grandma when I was all of about 13. Of all the many buildings, monuments, etc., that we saw, the most impressive to me was Iwo Jima. That's a nice legacy.

2. I felt the same way about the monument, babylonsister
You can only wonder what was going through his mind when he shot that photo.

3. From the article:
"Out of the corner of my eye, I had seen the men start the flag up. I swung my camera and shot the scene. That is how the picture was taken, and when you take a picture like that, you don't come away saying you got a great shot. You don't know."

"Millions of Americans saw this picture five or six days before I did, and when I first heard about it, I had no idea what picture was meant."

He recalled that days later, when a colleague congratulated him on the picture, he thought he meant another, posed shot he had taken later that day, of Marines waving and cheering at the base of the flag.

4. I liked this quote too:
He liked to call himself "a guy who was up in the big leagues for a cup of coffee at one time."
