We spent almost the entirety of the next 10 hours under fire.. You know, our vehicle got progressively less driveable. Everybody was very focused, looking out the window. Being outside of a vehicle is suicide. I heard somebody scream in Arabic, "sayarat mufakhkhakha" which means booby-trapped car. I felt the explosion directly in front of me. I thought a lot about the person in that car. I wish I could have talked to him to understand who he was. Trying to imagine that without anger or disgust is part of our job as journalists, too. I'm Bryan Denton, photojournalist for The New York Times.
