Claude P. Dettloff - “Wait For Me Daddy”, October 1, 1940: A line of soldiers march in British Columbia on their way to a waiting train as five-year-old Whitey Bernard tugs away from his mother’s hand to reach out for his father. From 40 Of The Most Powerful Photographs Ever Taken
Cate Blanchett by Annie Leibovitz I love that this photograph is in black and white. The composition is fun and alive, bringing out a joyful emotion which makes the photograph a lot more appealing in my opinion. This shot looks like it was taken when she was actually speeding along the path on her bike, which gives the photo a bit more action as you can see her hair blowing in the wind.
