A life behind Life Magazine photos

Growing up in the 60's and 70's you knew that cover of Life Magazine was always special. Watching this documentary and learning just how special those cover photos truly are was fascinating. A birds eye view from the inside the dome of the Capitol rotunda would be difficult today, even with a drone, and Bob Gomel did it with cables and rigging and a camera to capture the iconic photo of President Eisenhower's flag draped coffin for the cover of Life Magazine. Amazing work and amazing stories. If you are over 50, you might just remember some of these photos. Enjoy a look back in time!

Fascinating look across time

Today, people snap photos with their phones without a care in the world but once upon a time you had 1 shot to get the picture. This was a fascinating look at some critical people and events in the world from someone I hadn't heard of until recently. I started watching to skim but sat thru it all start to finish.
