Jason Reed saw something interesting. It is something Ive discussed in PhotoBlog before. As a photojournalist it is valuable to be tuned in to visuals that represent ideas.

It could be argued that Jasons picture is a picture of the times we live in secret men, half-hidden behind icons we trust. It is a little scary.
