Freedom

… Gravity Free …, originally uploaded by Laurent Filoche (few days off).

Today’s tag search was ‘free’. BBC correspondent Alan Johnston, who was kidnapped in Gaza 16 weeks ago, has finally been freed – on Independence Day no less. Johnston became a symbol amongst journalists of the dangers they often face when reporting the news in places like the Middle East. There were vigils held internationally – and not just by BBC staff. He had an amazing amount of support and I am sure it has influenced the outcome.

It’s nice that, every once in a while, there is a happy ending.

More on his release here. And here is his release in pictures.

    I like the way the shadows pull your eye up to blind it. +10 points. You could almost buy a stuffed animal at the prize counter with that…
