    eerie to say the least, but how could he not have seen this?



    I guess situational awareness is a necessity even when taking pictures ! It is a shame.
    • Being prepared is to prepare, this is our responsibility.
    • I am not your Mommy or Daddy and do not sugar coat it but I will tell you simply as how I see it, it is up to you on how you will or will not use it.
    • IANAL, all information I present is for your review, do your own homework.

    I would imagine that it being dark, the victim may not have even seen the killer. The flash almost appears to illuminate him accidentally.

    This pretty much sums it up. There have been plenty of times I've caught certain details on camera that I didn't notice before taking the picture because of the flash (or a longer exposure). I also believe human depth perception (or is it peripheral vision) is severely limited at night, making it even more likely to miss something like this if they're far enough in the background and you're busy focusing on something more lit up.

    Yeah... that's a dark area, and he used a flash on his camera. Probably didn't see the guy until the second flash.

    Sad.

The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." -John Stuart Mill
