    Thanks billbretz,

    Did you see all the comments in the blog? Whew. Sorry to add more wasted words of speculation.

    So he moved 100 yards to be out of range of Russian cannonballs coming his way... Maybe this is simply an hour and a half's worth of artillery aimed at the spot he was at - 100 yards in front of his camera.

    The photographs were taken after the battle and after all the soldiers had left the area. By all accounts of the time Fenton was very cautious and was adverse to putting himself in danger. He would not have been there during the bombardment.

    Didn't he stop a cannon ball with his Nikon? If you look carefully it's the ball with a dent in it. The Nikon was undamaged, I understand.

    Maybe I am getting confused with another photojournalist story

    Applying 20th century ethics to 19th century behavior.
    “You seek escape from pain. We seek the achievement of happiness. You exist for the sake of avoiding punishment. We exist for the sake of earning rewards. Threats will not make us function; fear is not our incentive. It is not death that we wish to avoid, but life that we wish to live.” - John Galt
