Today's staged Hezbollah photos 8/28

It is perfectly normal to get a pitcher of hot water, walk a few blocks with it and spoons and a table and a tray and a baby carriage and glasses, and enjoy some tea while feeding the baby in the most photogenic rubble in Lebanon.

Doesn't seem contrived at all!

But then again, this photographer seems to have a knack at finding people at just the most poignant time. It's clearly a talent:

Now, exactly why a woman would be hanging around the site of a prison remains a mystery.

But I'm sure Patrick Baz knows the answer.

Maybe this will turn into a series!
