Since the shirt isn’t going to have any effect on the actual poachers of the tigers it seems like a pretty poor marketing campaign. I really expected more from Leo Burnett , the famous advertising agency that apparently did this for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).  

I suppose it might work alright to generate awareness of the poaching problem… but I still fail to see what that will solve, unless there is a huge mainstream market for Siberian tiger stuff I am not aware of.

I took both pictures at ground zero on November 11, 2004. A bit over three years after the attack, and the whole area was still in shambles.  The feeling was (and I’m sure still is) very eerie there. Around the entire perimeter every so often there were groups of tactical looking NYPD officers with rifles (AR-15 pattern.. but could have been M4’s, I’m not sure) and German shepherds that were all business.

Very interesting idea.  Seems like it would be pretty tough to get the perspective perfect unless you could somehow hook your camera up to your computer and have some sort of “live view” and overlay the historical picture with lots of transparency. There must be some programs available to do that… trial and error would just be too tedious.

Almost a century ago and without the aid of any pixel-generating computer software, the itinerant photographer Arthur Mole (1889-1983) used his 11 x 14-inch view camera to stage a series of extraordinary mass photographic spectacles that choreographed living bodies into symbolic formations of religious and national community. In these mass ornaments, thousands of military troops and other groups were arranged artfully to form American patriotic symbols, emblems, and military insignia visible from a bird’s eye perspective. During World War I, these military formations came to serve as rallying points to support American involvement in the war and to ward off isolationist tendencies.

Simply amazing; the use of perspective is incredible. It would be neat to see this done again.

I wonder if there was a lot of complaining back then? I’m sure there would be plenty today if soldiers were ordered to be involved in this type of project.

Never before in history have active-duty American troops been invited to march in the Victory Day parade, according to the United States military. The occasion is the 65th anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II, a date that carries an almost sacred meaning in Russia.

Ukrainian and Russian sailors wearing in World War II-era Soviet soldiers’ uniforms march during a parade rehearsal in the central Ukrainian city of Sevastopol, the main base of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

Anyone know what make / model guns those are?
