    Much appreciated Luke. Now I'm going to start looking at some of the other stories in that issue.

    The photo with Kennedy and the busboy is quite amazing if one was to ignore the tragedy of the scene.

    The high contrast lighting and isolation of the subjects. It's just amazing. Actually it's even more amazing when you take the tragedy of the scene into account.

    that main really is a showstopper, but I'm amazed at the rest of them. There's a few that I assume were taken shortly before the shooting. It's s small piece of a much larger body of work. It's pretty neat to see all those shots that weren't published.

    Compounding the RFK tragedy is the multitude of photos taken by J.S. Enyart, forcibly taken from him by LAPD, then destroyed. The news stories say stolen, but under the circumstances the more obvious explanation.
