Now starring on Boston.com: some dude taking what looks like a really painful fall on the ice.
Questions to consider:
1) If you were the guy in question, how would you feel about the Globe documenting your accident? (Note: it's not clear whether the subject knew he was photographed or not.)
2) Consider the explanation that accompanies the fifth, ugliest photo: "Moments before this series of photos was taken Globe photographer David
Ryan himself slipped and fell on the ice, damaging one of his cameras.
He was photographing the scene of his own accident when this gentleman
began his fall." Does that change your answer to question 1, above?
3) Photo slideshows of other people's misery could certainly help drive people to Boston.com. What other painful events would you like to see?
