When I looked at the photo for the first time, I didnt notice the deep meaning behind it. I thought it was a normal photo with some solider posting with their guns on hand. But after I analyzed the photo there are evidence that proves it is not a staged photo. We can see that through his gun it is clear moving , also the soldiers is half falling it is hard to say that it is staged, and his hand is moving backward .I believe that the soldier in this photo was shot.After I read Whelan’s arguments it is more convincing that this photo is about a soldier who was shot. I do think Whelan’s arugument are convincing because his analysis and mine can be connected.
