    ....pick just one photo that struck a chord with you , the second you saw it ......and has remained a picture you love...
    which photo would it be ?
    Also if you have the picture handy , show it to us here :)


    P.S I know it'll probably be almost impossible to just pick one so maybe just pick the image that came to your mind as soon as you read my question ;).


    The very first photo that I thought of , in that category , is this one of an afgan girl ( its a pretty famous one so a lot of ppl would recognise it ).

    That sure is a powerful set of eyes!
    Do you know that Steve McCurry went back to Afganisthan in search of her after 17 years or so? And he did find her!

    Indeed , those eyes are amazing arent they ! :)

    And I read that he found her !

    I kinda feel that it would've been alright if they never found her though....

    I guess its just cool to have some things in the world remain a mystery.....

    I saw the whole thing on TV. She is another Mommy in a remote village who was unaware of the whole fiasco with her old picture!




    Sorry for the hijack... :)

    Back to the topic in hand folks!

    Peace out!

    Sure is a tough call!
    But here are couple of what came in to my mind:

    by Steve McCurry. We all have seen tons of Taj Mahal pics, but this one I think, is a splendid story.

    This one struck me deeply, especially when you realize there are roughly 10 men in the plane and odds are most of them didn't make it out.
