Tank Man from a different angle

image

This was released today.

This photo is of the Tank Man, the lone figure that dared stand in front of a line of tanks after the Tiananmen Square massacre.  This brings an interesting new perspective on the situation, mainly from the standpoint that the Tank Man did not make his decision totally “off the cuff”.  There he is, on the left, waiting as the tanks approach from down the street. 

One wonders what was on his mind when this photo was taken.
