Old SoldierS by MRBee30 Old SoldierS by MRBee30
War has changed... Old SoldierS never die; they just fade away.

With reasonable men, I will reason; with humane men I will plead; but to tyrants I will give no quarter, nor waste arguments where they will certainly be lost. For the means by which we live have outdistanced the ends for which we live. Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.

أستطيع أن أرى شخصين الدائمة. ببنادق مرفوعة.

Soldiers may be used as tools, but they nonetheless are human.
We sometimes tend to forget that they have faces as well.
Since you emphasize on that soldier's face in particular, people hopefully are going to remember that again.

I like how you put emphasis on the eyes in a way, its really cool. Keep up the great work.

A ghost of a soldier long dead and forgotten. Or so was the plan.

Everything about this is just beautiful, down to the soldier himself. He reminds me of a ghost. . .some man who fell in the desert and just came back and haunts the place he died. Or maybe the rest of his brothers in their dreams.

Have you by any chance seen the movie Dreams? The dream where an officer comes back from war and sees the soldiers in the platoon he had been commanding, who don't know that they are all dead.
Your photo so reminds me of that. Another job well done!

This reminds me of This is War by 30 Seconds to Mars. I love this photo. It's one of my favorites, definitely.

The eyes make the soldier seem very cold blooded. Hesitation doesn't seem to belong into his vocabulary. Nice shot!
