I second that and take it further. In my opinion, it's sometimes "wonderfully" disgusting when people enjoy their holidays in countries where other people struggle and often die from hunger, sexual abuse, and drugs, to name only an eerie few. Trying to find a great shot amongst people who desperately try to survive, and especially when the latter are the photo subject, tells in itself more stories than any "great" photo could ever tell. I'm not attacking all people who take photos of such tragic moments; there are -most respectfully- photojournalists, people who are -in principal, at least- touched by the pain and suffering while taking such shots, and who sometimes cannot even handle it in any other way than by suicide, as in the case of Kevin Carter (www.fanpop.com/spots/photography/articles/2845/title/kevin-carter-consequences-photojournalism). Maybe it's too much a comment for this thread, but it doesn't hurt either to add it herein.

Regards,
