    Took these shots for work the other day. It was an update on a kid we interviewed a couple months ago. At the time he was just diagnosed. He recently had his leg amputated. These are a couple of my choices for photos. My editor thought otherwise. I think he made a mistake in choosing the lead photo.

    Here's my pick for lead and a secondary of Kevin looking at a magazine about prosthetic limbs. The story and photos that ran can be seen here: http://lodinews.com/articles/2008/06/28/news/2_johnson_080628.txt

    It was a pretty emotional thing to shoot. Especially considering just a couple months ago he was a skateboarder and now he's had to put that behind him.

    What do you guys think?

    I think its intense. The one that ended up getting published on the web makes sense to me because there is more going on with the prosthetic leg. The photos made me think and I actually read the article because of them. Nice job!

    really intense. great photographs. sorry but i agree with the editor. if the story is about the brave boy getting on with his life showing him with his prostetic leg is much more up lifiting.
