 Do I have the right to carry on working and leave a man suffering? To my mind, the answer is no, you have got to help him... You cannot go through these elements without, obviously feeling something yourself—you cannot be mercenary in this way because it will make you less of a photographer... 
 I am very happy with the equipment I have. All I need is time and patience to use it to the fullest degree, plus God on my side to help with the lighting problems—to move the sun and the moon and the stars to the positions of my choice. 
 You can’t photograph bullets flying through the air, so it must be the wounded, or people running with ammunition, and the expressions on their faces. 
 Sorry if my captioning is not up to standard but with all that sniper fire around I didn’t dare wave a white notebook.
