New York Times photographers Tyler Hicks (right, in glasses) and Lynsey Addario (far left), run for cover during a bombing run by Libyan government planes at a checkpoint near the oil refinery of Ras Lanuf on Friday, Mar. 11. The other photojournalists pictured, starting from second left are John Moore of Getty Images, Holly Pickett and Philip Poupin. Hicks and Addario, along with NYT correspondents Stephen Farrell and Anthony Shadid, were reported missing near lines of advancing Gadhafi forces two days ago, the NYT announced on Wednesday.

I wish them well. Hope they are well. This amazing photo reminded me of the last shot of the great film “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” as well as almost any Comic book Cover Splash shot of the Heroes Team – (JLA or Avengers etc) The virtual now replaced by the real. SO UNCOMMON TODAY.  Real people doing real things and telling others. So little of what the web/media being celebrated is about this anymore.  Now back to the Apple shrinking the bevel on it’s iphone show….;(
