17 January 2013

A nice, light one for your Thursday night.
Light on reading, but heavy in depth.

Today's Daily Quota is a collection of some fantastic still and action shots of US and NATO troops in the Helmand and Kunar provinces of Afghanistan.
They were taken by AP photojournalist David Goldman as part of a series for The Frame.

The resolution is fantastic - perfect for capturing the beautiful, unforgiving Afghanistan landscape.
These are ancient lands these soldiers walk on, and their blood spilt upon them is the most recent of many before them.

These images provide a great insight into what these US troops wake up to, it gives us an view into their looking glass and it paints a much more vivid picture of the long stretches of inaction that we rarely see in the media.
I thoroughly enjoyed this collection, and I hope you will too.
