  • monte71That's a sad story. Shit.
  • ariscottWow. What happened there is heartbreaking. I love Seaside Heights. It's unimaginable. Thank you so much for your photos lately. They really personalize what's happening.
  • avrilduffyBless him
  • amyirenieMy heart hurts. I would like to sit and hold his hand. :-(
  • tocafotoso sad!
  • dwayne_hooverI discovered the Geotag answer to my question through multiple Google searches after I posed that question to you. But thank you for responding. I believe I'll steer clear of that, though. Too much information to put out there. I'm not so trusting.
  • dwayne_hooverI like your work very much, by the way. Especially those powerful war zone images. And the man flying the kite, photo. So beautiful. Always sticks in my mind.
  • geralyngThe world as we know it has changed. Spirits are broken and life goes on. Things will get better but never the same.
  • bridgetmakIt's heartbreaking.
