This surprisingly sweet and sad photo by Getty photographer Spencer Platt reminds us that though Chris Hondros is gone, his remarkable talent remains.
(credit: Spencer Platt/Getty Images caption: A female protester carries a painting that is the likeness of a photo made by Getty Images photographer Chris Hondros in Iraq in 2005 that shows an Iraqi girl moments after members of her family were shot by American troops at a check-point on May 20, 2012 in Chicago, Illinois. Sixty heads of state, 2,500 journalists and thousands of protesters have converged on Chicago for the two day NATO meeting which begins on Sunday and will look to address the situation in Afghanistan among other global defense issues. Chicago police are preparing for the worst with many officers in riot gear and with their numbers enhanced by police from outside the city.)
