A great piece in this month’s Vanity Fair on the famous war photographer Robert Capa.  As a history buff I know many of the photographs but only recently learnt about the photographer.  Some iconic shots of his over the years featured in the article.  The shot below of Huston Riley is said to have played a role in inspiring the movie ‘Saving Private Ryan’.  This is very much a local story with Huston being a long time resident of Mercer Island – a nice story about him from 2008.
