First – Strong images throughout this entry would stand on their own,however as a series this paints a more complete picture of the devastation and builds a complex narrative. Second – Smoke and painterly light give impact to this clean composition. The unusual victim also makes this scene unique. Third – The irony of the firefighters amid the stacks of albums makes this scene comical and fun. Definitely unusual for spot news.
