A U.S. Army explosive ordnance disposal Soldier attached to 5th Battalion, 20th Infantry Regiment puts
away his remotely operated vehicle (ROV) in Siah Choy, Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, March 27, 2012.
This ROV was used to gather intelligence on a large cache protected by improvised explosive devices
without risk to Soldiers. (U.S. Army photo by Spc. Kristina Truluck/Released)



My military imagery is available for public domain. As the photographer, I don't have control over
how you may use it, but I ask that it be done with respect to the individuals represented here.

I'm a ninja.  ;p

Leadership originally didn't even want me as close as I got due to all that crap in that building you investigated.

No idea. It looked pretty light from the way he was handling it, but I'm probably wrong.

List of reason to be thankful to them
1. EOD guys save lots of lives at the risk of their own.
2. I've seen them at work and they are put in more dangerous situations than regular army infantry.
3. They've given families at home to see their love ones returned to them alive.

Definitely, these guys are crazy. I'm glad we've been able to replace our guys with technology when it comes to getting close to the ordinance.

It's really rare you get to see such close-up photographs of these themes.. The light makes it look really deep and serious. It's such a wonderful capture though, you've got a real skill for dark shots. C:

great work looks a little artificial because of the light

Yeah, I was battling with lightroom a bit to brighten this enough so that you could see what's going on without losing the integrity of the photo and action.

Great work. Brings home to non combatants the seriousness of war. Dark and ominous photo. Well done. :D

Thank you! It was a challenge to get the photo even somewhat exposed in that light, especially in that location. Dx
