Been a week since last updates… Busy times…both professionally and personally, with a friend visiting from Caracas, but here we go again…

A proof of how hectic it’s been, is that I haven’t even hit the NYT Paywall 20 free articles limit yet…and I was able not only see the below photo(s) on the Lens blog, but also read the article (If I remember correctly, after I’m going to hit the 20, I can only see the photos but not the text)…

Features and Essays – Finbarr O’Reilly: On the Road to Revolution (NYT Lens blog: April 2011) Libya

I found some of Chris Morris’ Libya series Theater of War on Lightbox to be very reminiscent of his My America..Check this out…Libya frames on the left…(you can see the comparison bigger here)
