Day #188: Blind Pilot – “The Story I Heard”
To me, the camera ranks up there among mankind’s greatest inventions. Below is a picture of Harold Whittles. That’s his reaction after being able to hear for the first time when doctors placed an earpiece in his ear, and the photo is included in BuzzFeed‘s “40 of the Most Powerful Photographs Ever Taken.”
I hope there will be another installment, as there’s too many photos left off the list. Readers posted a few deserving ones in the comments, including the iconic scenes out of Hiroshima and Vietnam, and one of Roman Polanski sitting on the porch of his home days after his wife, Sharon Tate, was murdered by the Manson cult.
